(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Strong thunderstorms with lightning and large hail caused power outages and at least one house fire in central Oklahoma.
No injuries have been reported.
A house in northeast Oklahoma City was struck by lightning and caught fire about 9:45 last night.
The National Weather Service says hail the size of golf balls was reported in Logan County.
The storms are blamed for knocking out power to more than four-thousand Oklahoma Gas and Electric Company customers in the metro area.
About 90 customers in Midwest City were without power just after 9 this morning.
Outages were reported in north and southwest Oklahoma City, Edmond, El Reno and Midwest City.
