OKLAHOMA CITY, OK– Parts of the metro were hit hard by a storm that moved through Friday afternoon.
60 mile per-hour wind gusts damaged trees and power lines on the South side of the city.
Oklahoma City Fire Major Shane Williams said, “We had significant damage I’d say from Robinson to Western all through this side of town. Huge trees blown down.”
A tree crashed down on top of a home near Sante Fe and 42nd. Firefighters blame the wind.
Major Williams said, “It fell down on the structure itself. We have a power line laying across it and of course it damaged the structure as well.”
As many as 16-thousand residents were without power.
That number has dropped to just over two-thousand people waiting for power to be restored.
