OKLAHOMA CITY -

The strong winds have already caused problems, knocking some power out overnight in parts of Oklahoma.

We're talking 20 to 40 mph winds on Thursday with gusts exceeding that. Overnight, several homes and businesses were in the dark in Oklahoma City and in Seminole because of the wind.

Check power outages here.

Powerful winds knocked power out in southeast Oklahoma City overnight. A downed power pole near S.E. 31st and Hiwassee Road cut power for a couple of hours. It was rotted at the bottom. That didn't help.

Power has been restored to those areas.

Not related to the wind, OG&E posted on Twitter that a circuit problem cut power to almost 6,700 customers in north Oklahoma City Wednesday night. It was just out for a few minutes.

If you see a downed power line, stay away and call police.

As of 7 a.m., OG&E reports that 198 customers in Prague and 209 customers in Schlegal are still without power.
