UPDATE: OKLAHOMA CITY – Strong winds during Monday night's storm have caused severe damage in several Oklahoma communities, including Oklahoma City.

There have been damages near the Britton and Hefner Parkway, the roof of a dry cleaner shop near Britton and MacArthur has been lifted by the powerful winds. Reports also say that a semi has been flipped on an overpass that runs over Kilpatrick near MacArthur.

The Village Police confirmed that several power poles have been knocked down by the wind, there is no power from 50th St. to Hefner Rd.

The Director of Public Safety in Stillwater reported that the City of Stillwater has taken a hit to the electric system, more than 50% of the city is without power. They have crews checking the damage and they are working as fast as they can. However, they are not sure when power will be back on.

Oklahoma City Fire Department was called earlier Monday night to assist Piedmont Fire Department with severe wind damages. According the fire department, the strong winds have caused damages near 164th and Piedmont Rd. in Piedmont.

Reports say a trailer house in Piedmont has been flipped over, roofs are damaged from several houses, and power poles are reported to be down everywhere.

Oklahoma Red Cross says several other communities have been effected as well, including Waukomis, Lahoma, Meno, Enid, north of Enid, Fairmont, and Covington.

Damage reported in these communities includes roof damage, windows blown out, home damage, and power lines down.

The Red Cross says anyone in the Enid area with damage to report, or needs Red Cross assistance should call their office in Enid at (580) 237-5994. They are also opening a cooling center for residents in the Enid area. This center will be at the New Hope Church on N Garland in Enid.

OG&E customers are suggested to watch the OG&E web site for power outage updates.

So far, one person was injured as the result of this storm. An ADT alarm employee was installing an alarm at a building near Britton and McArthur. He got underneath an awning when the storm blew through. That's when the sign off of the building blew off and landed on the man's leg, trapping him.

Firefighters had to cut the man out to rescue. He was rushed to the hospital, but we're told he is going to be okay.
