Severe Storms, Dangerous Winds Rake Across Eastern Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

The National Weather Service has canceled a tornado warning for the Tulsa area after a possible tornado was spotted 4 miles south of Sand Springs about 12:15 p.m., the WARN weather team says.

Large trees have been reported down in Pawnee, Creek and Tulsa counties as a result of the storm that pushed through around noon before and during the tornado warning.

The City of Tulsa's Streets and Stormwater Department is responding to downed trees. They ask residents to call the Customer Care Center at 918-596-2100 to report any downed trees, limbs, or debris blocking the road.

The city said people should avoid several areas while crews clear greenwaste and debris. Those areas include:

  • East 71st Street, west of South Garnett Road
  • 2809 East 35th Street
  • 2820 South Utica Avenue
  • East 39th Street and South Lewis Avenue

The City of Broken Arrow says its crews are also dealing with storm damage, including downed lines and trees.

Crews are in the process of assessing the damage saying:

  • BAFD is monitoring areas where downed power lines have been reported
  • BA Emergency Management is coordinating with PSO and other affected utilities to restore service
  • Street Department employees are removing tree limbs from roadways
  • Additional emergency crews are assessing damage

The City said one building, Spoke House Bicycle at 224 South Main, sustained damage. The city said the back end of the building collapsed, possibly due to high winds.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a semi overturned in the eastbound lanes of the Turner Turnpike at mile marker 219.

About 4:30 p.m., PSO reported more than 85,000 customers without power across Mayes, Osage, Tulsa, Rogers and Wagoner counties. PSO says could take up to 24-48 hours for all to be restored.

PSO outage numbers

OG&E is reporting over around 42,000 customers have been impacted in their coverage areas.

Rural Water District number 7 said it has lost power to some of its pumps and is asking Mounds residents to conserve water until it can be restored; officials say that may not happen until Friday.

In Inola, the storm flattened a mobile home near 4210 Road and 640 Road. We're told no one was at home at the time, but a dog was inside. The dog was OK, but the home was destroyed.

A severe thunderstorm warning remained in effect 1:30 p.m. for portions of Okmulgee, Rogers, Wagoner, Muskogee, Creek and Tulsa counties. Winds measured up to 60 mph in Tulsa County and had potential to reach up to 90 mph as they moved east and southeast.

WARN Interactive Radar

A complex of rain and storms will continue to push into Green Country posing a risk for strong and damaging winds this afternoon.

Large hail and flash flooding are also possible in the heaviest of the cells. While the tornado risk is very low, we can't rule out that threat either.

Weather Alerts

The most likely time for these storms would be early to mid-afternoon for the Tulsa metro area. Far eastern and southern Oklahoma are more likely to have storms by late afternoon into the evening.
