OKLAHOMA CITY -

Power outages have continued throughout the state Saturday, according to OG&E.

As of 2:12 p.m. Saturday, more than 4,500 people (4,553) are experiencing power outages across the state. Among the cities experiencing the most outages across the state are Piedmont (1,848), Oklahoma City (1,025) and Norman (1,021).

Other municipalities -- including Bristow (189), Mustang (170) and Asher (125) -- have reported at least 100 outages.

OG&E restored electricity to customers in Moore and Bixby, which reported approximately 5,000 outages combined Saturday morning.

As much of the state has experienced high winds and freezing temperatures already, the company said Saturday it has dispatched "over 100 restoration personnel" to restore service to its customers.

This is a developing story.
