Sapulpa Left With Power Outages, Storm Damage

Posted: Updated:
SAPULPA, Oklahoma -

A Sapulpa transformer blew just after 7 a.m., setting a nearby tree on fire. It's located in the 1300 block of South Main. Sapulpa fire responded.

Firefighters told News On 6 they believe the issue was weather related, caused by strong winds. The pole snapped with the lines still attached.

A nearby strip center that includes a pharmacy is without power. The rest of the area has some scattered outages. The City of Sapulpa arrived on scene to block the street with barricades until OG&E can get in to replace the pole.

About 2,000 customers were already without power in Sapulpa after a storm with strong winds, according to OG&E. Outages are scattered throughout the town.

The number has been reduced to under 1,000 by 8:34 a.m.

The storm also left downed limbs and debris in the streets. The storm blew through around 1:45 a.m.

The electric company hopes to have power restored by mid-morning.
