Oklahoma City officials are asking residents and businesses in southeast Oklahoma City to stop using water after Monday's storm knocked out power to the Draper Water Treatment Plant.

The city says OG&E crews are working to reinstate power to the plant, but until then emergency generators will be used.

People are urged to turn off sprinkler systems, postpone washing clothes and dishes, and avoid any other devices that require water usage.

The water treatment plant is not sure when power will be restored.
