OKLAHOMA CITY -

Thousands of customers are still without power following a massive storm system that brought damaging high winds, hail and rain to most of Oklahoma Friday night and Saturday.

According to the OG&E outage map, there are over 10,000 customers without power including nearly 8,000 in Oklahoma City.

At one point, at least 80,000 customers were without power.

Saturday afternoon, OG&E spokesperson Brian Alford told News 9, “This particular storm was really nothing short of what we see with damage from a tornado. Those straight line winds in excess of 80-90 mph caused a significant amount of damage across a very wide area, almost as if we’d had ice.”

OG&E said it has crews working across the metro and hundreds were coming in from other states to help restore power.
