(Reuters) - More than 1.7 million homes and businesses in Texas were still without power on Wednesday morning after Hurricane Beryl slammed through the region, according to data from PowerOutage.us.

This was down from a peak of close to 2.7 million homes and businesses without power in the state on Monday.

Beryl lost strength quickly upon making landfall, and it was downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone by Tuesday. The U.S. National Hurricane Center warned that flash flooding and tornados remained possible from mid-Mississippi to the lower Ohio Valley.

Provider Centerpoint Energy said it restored power to more than 850,000 customers of the 2.26 million impacted.

Here are the major outages by utility:
