Hundreds of people are still without power in Wagoner County. 

Porter Public Schools' last day was set for May 19 but they will make up their last school day of school on Monday.

Mayor Steve Dickey said a storage building is probably the worst of the damage in town but there is other damage in the area. 

The walls and roof were lifted off the storage building in storms overnight.

Dickey said no one was hurt and that could be because the storm sirens went off in Porter Thursday night and about 300 people showed up to take shelter in the downtown civic center.

Currently, about half of the town is in the dark and PSO is reporting just over three hundred customers don't have power between Porter and Tullahassee.
