PSO Moves Up Estimate For Restoring Power To Tulsa Area Customers

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Public Service Company of Oklahoma says utility crews have restored power to more than half of those left in the dark by Wednesday morning's storms. But the utility says there are still about 49,000 PSO customers without electricity in Osage, Tulsa and Wagoner counties.

Crews from other states have been called in to fix the damage and they're staging at the Tulsa County Fairgrounds.

PSO says restoration efforts are ahead of its original forecast. It now estimates that it will have power restored to 95% of all customers by Saturday, July 27 at 5 p.m. It says service to most customers will be restored prior to that time.

The utility cautions that more bad weather, which is possible Thursday night, could force it to change its restoration forecast.

More than 105,000 PSO and OG&E customers lost service Wednesday morning when a line of thunderstorms roared across northeast Oklahoma.

The OSU Center for Health Sciences re-opened Thursday after crews restored power to the Tulsa campus.

There's still damage so the school wants faculty, staff and students to use the parking lot off Southwest Boulevard on the northwest side of campus.

The Red Cross cooling station for Tulsa area residents affected by the storms will be open until 8 p.m. The cooling station is located at Crosstown Church of Christ, 3400 East Admiral Place.
