City utility crews are still working to restore power to about a dozen customers in Collinsville after a storm Thursday evening.

Residents told News On 6 it felt like a hurricane when the storm struck, uprooting trees and snapping utility poles.

Collinsville Energy says they've called for mutual aid from the City of Wagoner to help replace damaged and broken power poles in the city.  They gave no timetable to when those remaining customers would have service again.

The utility says most of the damage is concentrated in the north central part of town and at the peak of the outage, 3,200 customers were without power.

No injuries have been reported.
