24,000 without power in Oklahoma

Oklahoma City —  

Two Oklahoma utilities say the number of customers without power has fallen by nearly half to 24,000, mostly in the west and northwest corners of the state hit hardest by a winter storm.

Much of that decrease comes from Enid, which Oklahoma Gas and Electric says has gone from more than 21,000 customers without power Tuesday afternoon to just over 11,000. About 10,000 OG&E customers elsewhere still don’t have power.

The Public Service Company of Oklahoma reports about 2,000 of its customers remain without power, mostly in counties west of Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma residents and repair crews face more than a foot of snow in some areas of the state’s northwest quadrant with even higher drifts.

Ada missed it, although a light snow was falling around 10:30 p.m. Monday night.

The National Weather Service, which had predicted 1-3 inches of snow for Ada and the surrounding area, said Tuesday the storm missed the city to the north and west. It also had pretty much played out by the time it reached central Oklahoma, weather officials said.

A gradual warmup is the weather du jour, with highs expected in the 40s.
