TULSA, OK -- A line of severe storms moved across northeastern Oklahoma early Tuesday morning causing only minor damage.

Heavy rain coupled with winds up to 80 miles per hour tore across Osage County.

A check with law enforcement showed no reports of any major damage from the storms. It seems the only damage was limbs off trees and street flooding issues.

The Osage County Sheriff's Office in Pawhuska says they had to switch to a generator after the storm knocked out power early Tuesday.

Elsewhere, minor power outages were been reported and utility crews were out quickly to restore service.

News On 6 meteorologist Alan Crone says a cold front is crossing the area Tuesday and that means afternoon highs in the mid 80s.

Mild weather will remain for the rest of the week with a slight chance of showers or storms Thursday morning and also this weekend.
