HOUSTON — Storms packing winds approaching 90 mph are sweeping across parts of Texas and Oklahoma, causing widespread power outages in the Dallas area — including at a professional soccer game.

FC Dallas tweeted that its game against Toronto was being delayed Saturday night because the storm had knocked out half the lights at Toyota Stadium.

The Dallas Morning News reports the storm also delayed the Academy of Country Music's Party for a Cause festival in Arlington. All flights at Dallas Love Field were halted until the storm passed.

Oncor spokesman Kris Spears tells the Morning News tens of thousands of power outages were reported across the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

There were reports of quarter-sized hail Saturday afternoon from central Nebraska through the plains of western Oklahoma and into Texas.
