OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – Thousands were without power Friday morning after a line of severe storms rolled through central Oklahoma overnight.
As of 5:30 a.m. Central time, OG&E reported 20,334 customers were without power.
"We are actively working to restore power to customers who are experiencing outages due to storms," the electric company said. "While crews are working, please stay away from downed power lines and anything they are touching."
Showers and storms have since moved out of this area but will threaten parts of the mid-South, Midwest and Northeast later Friday.
In Canadian County, NOAA's Storm Prediction Center reported that windows were broken by wind-driven hail, possibly up to tennis-ball size. There were also reports of damage to a hangar at Will Rogers Airport, widows destroyed, trees uprooted and a roof removed from a building in Oklahoma County.
