OKLAHOMA CITY -

A problem with a transformer has knocked out power inside one of the buildings at Western Heights High School.

The school is divided into two buildings. The building that houses 10th, 11th and 12th graders is without power. The gym and building that houses the 9th graders still have power, so all students have been moved to these areas.

According to Western Heights Assistant Superintendent Rita Morgan, OGE said there was an issue with a transformer, which caused the outage. However, the diagnosis was not determined until after the students arrived to the school.

Students can be picked up by parents, or drive home if a parent calls in for them. Kids who are unable to get home at this time will be able to stay in the gym or the 9th grade center until the buses come for usual pickup.
