The governor expressed concerns that residents wouldn't know of incoming severe weather because power remains out in the community.

Utility crews said it would likely take days to restore power.

Utilities say power is out to about 6,000 homes and businesses across Oklahoma. Most of the outages are in Norman, Oklahoma City, Shawnee and Wellston.

The governor will then tour damage along Timber Road and a mobile home park in Shawnee.
