OKLAHOMA CITY – As severe storms brought strong winds and hail to the metro, thousands of residents were left without electricity.
According to OG&E’s System Watch, more than 40,000 people were still without power by 5:40 a.m. on Wednesday. OG&E says more than half of those customers are in the Oklahoma City area.
OG&E said it was bringing in more crews to try and restore electricity as quickly as possible.
“We don’t have restoration times right now, but we expect multi-day outages,” OG&E posted.
Officials say they are also experiencing issues with their phone system, so customers should report outages online.
