Power Pole Crashes Through Edmond Family's Home, Neighbors Too

EDMOND, Oklahoma -

Hail and high winds did some serious damage across the metro Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning, and on Friday, insurance adjusters were making the rounds.

It took a couple days, but OG&E workers finally have replaced the power poles along 164th St.  But for the folks who live along the street the clean up won't be as quick. The winds were so strong they blew over a brick fence. Power poles even toppled over on top of a handful of houses.

That's what happened to the Davis family.  Hope Davis was in the living room watching the storm.

"I looked through that window and then that window and you couldn't see there was tons of hail and wind and just like rain and everything," she explained. "I ran back and told my mom and my sisters we need to get in a shelter and just like that, Boom! The power went out and there was this big loud noise."

"We rushed in here and there was a big hole in the ceiling. The rain was pouring through and we knew we had a problem," said Hope's dad Paul.

That's when they looked outside and saw that a huge power pole had blown over on to the roof of their house. The same thing happened to their neighbors and another home down the street, with power lines damaging roofs of the homes in between.

"It may have straight-line winds," said Paul. "I don't know. It was something pretty strong."

It was strong enough to do $30,000 in damage to the Davis house and at least that to his neighbors.
