Downed powerline closes an eastern Oklahoma highway

The severe weather forced the closure of an eastern Oklahoma turnpike late Sunday night.

The Cherokee Turnpike which heads east to Arkansas was shutdown when a power line snapped. The line crossed all lanes of traffic on the highway.

Cars on the turnpike took a beating in the storms as well as hail pounded motorists. One driver we talked to said he had to dodge baseball sized hail.
