Lake Region Electric reports there are still more than 1,000 customers without power in areas including Wagoner, Coweta, Peggs, Fort Gibson, and Perk.

A spokesperson from Lake Region said the utility lost about 130 poles in the storm last Thursday. 

A cooling station will be set up at the Whitehorn Fire Department from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday and Tuesday. That's at 69953 South 312 Way.

There will also be sandwiches, chips and drinks for all those who need to beat the heat, according to Jeff Stamps, WFD.

The Oklahoma Gas & Electric System Watch map shows 523 customers in Muskogee, 88 customers in Fort Gibson, and 30 customers in Sapulpa have outages Monday.

Public Service of Oklahoma said all customers whose electricity was out following the storm last Thursday have been restored to power.  At its peak, about 109,000 customers in the Tulsa area lost power.
