News 9's Stormchasers reported seeing trees down and damage to several barns and at least one home. No reports of any injuries.

Hundreds of Oklahomans also woke up Tuesday morning with no power. Nearly 800 people are still without power in Medford and another 400 in nearby Wakita.

Also, the entire town of Deer Creek, in Grant County was evacuated when the storms uprooted a tree-- which tore up a gas line. That resulted in anhydrous gas leaking through the small town of 125 people.

The leak was capped at 2:00 a.m. Tuesday. Residents will be allowed to return home later Tuesday.
