OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – As residents continue to assess the damage around their homes after an early winter ice storm, crews with OG&E are working around the clock to restore electricity to the metro.
As of 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday, OG&E reported that more than 236,000 customers were without electricity.
That number grew to more than 262,000 as tree limbs continued to fall with the ongoing rain.
Officials say there are thousands of customers who have been without power since Monday, but there is no timeframe for when power will be restored.
At this point, nearly 2,000 crews are working to fix power lines and trim tree limbs.
So far, crews have already restored power for around 92,000 customers.
