TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa County is among 35 Oklahoma counties under a state of emergency Thursday morning after several days of stormy weather which left damage across the state.

Heavy rain flooded streets in Tulsa early Thursday, but the water quickly receded.

At 43rd and Sheridan a woman drove her car into high water and was stranded when the engine quit. Other drivers came to her aid and pushed the car out of the water.

The storms also knocked out power to homes and businesses.  At one point, the city of Claremore had more than 3,000 customers in the dark.

Wednesday night's storms came a day after a storm system spawned a weak tornado and hail the size of softballs in northwestern and central Oklahoma.

A handful of people were injured and wind gusts exceeding 75 mph snapped utility poles, leaving thousands without electricity.

OG&E says crews are still working to restore power to those affected in the Oklahoma City area.

Other counties in eastern Oklahoma under the state of emergency include Creek, Latimer, Okmulgee and Pittsburg.
