Storms rolling across northeast Oklahoma Saturday morning have led to a number of power outages, many due to lightning strikes.

Public Service Company of Oklahoma said as of 11 a.m. there was just over 750 customers in Tulsa and Washington counties still without power.  At the height of the outage, PSO was reporting 6,200 customers without power.
