We are seeing reports of outages around Oklahoma. OG&E, OEC, and PSO are all working to restore power to those affected.

OG&E Released the following statement:

We mobilized 950 personnel yesterday to respond to outages across our service area. Our crews are working around the clock to respond to outages and restore customers’ power as quickly and safely as possible. Current weather conditions are dangerous for those working outside and we have increased personnel to limit exposure to the elements.
Our power plants are meeting customer demand for electricity. Winter preparations at power plants were completed in early November. Additionally, we have increased our fuel storage capacity and locked in a portion of our fuel purchases to mitigate any fuel cost increases.
OG&E will not disconnect service if the temperature is forecasted to be below 32 degrees in a 24-hour period and determined by city. Given the forecasts through the weekend, we will not disconnect service for any customer at least through Monday, December 26.
