GUYMON, Oklahoma -

Late night and early morning storms have left a trail of damage in the Oklahoma panhandle.

Tri-County Electric Cooperative is reporting more than 100 broken utility poles that were broken by high winds that reached 85+ miles per hour in some areas.

Photos from Tri-County show utility workers repairing poles in the Guymon area early Tuesday morning.

A dispatcher at the Beaver County Sheriff's Office said high winds caused minor damage in the Beaver area overnight. Minor flooding was also reported.

Some News 9 viewers in Beaver County reported golf ball-sized hail. 

News 9 Meteorologist Lacey Swope says those storms are weakening as they push east into central Oklahoma.
