TULSA, Oklahoma -

Power has been restored in Tulsa County Sunday morning after thunderstorms with high winds made it to Green Country overnight. WARN Teams meteorologist Alan Crone said the scattered storms with winds of up to 50 mph were a "gust front," or small line moving ahead of severe storms.

Residents are reporting trees and branches down, and Public Service of Oklahoma stayed busy through the night with repairs to power lines.

One snapped power line sparking across Sheridan at about 14th Street melted the asphalt.

At the height of the outages, PSO had 2,000 customers without power, according to spokesperson Andrea Chancellor. Most of the damage was in south Tulsa, around the Southern Hills area, she said.

"We had lots of lightning and lots of wind, so it was not as bad as it could have been from looking at the skies last night," Chancellor said.

Some Mayfest artists and organizers are returning Sunday morning to tents that have blown over in the late night thunderstorm. There was some broken glass and ceramics, but many of the tents were undamaged.

A crew came through the downtown Tulsa festival at about 2 a.m. to clear debris off the city streets.

Northeastern Oklahoma remains in the bulls-eye for more rounds of severe weather late Sunday and Monday.
