TULSA, OK -- PSO says multiple equipment failures in Tulsa early Thursday morning left about 1,300 customers without electricity for several hours.   

A blown transformer started the outage at about 3 a.m., and about 45 minutes later another transformer blew. 

The outage affected customers between 31st and 51st and Sheridan and Hudson. 

PSO crews have been out for several hours and they expected to have all customers' electric service restored very soon. 

The outage also impacted streets and traffic signals in the area.
