Winter weather update

Posted: Updated:

Lawton police have worked on multiple crashes and vehicles sliding off the road at night. They have encouraged if you can stay off the road please do so. If you must get on the road give your self plenty of time, slow down, and be aware of your surroundings.

We're getting similar reports from Comanche County. The Sheriff's Department reports they have worked quite a few wrecks related to the slick roads overnight. 

There's also word of some spotty power outages, which are likely caused by a combination of ice on the lines, and the wind whipping those wires.

At one point during the early morning hours, PSO reported around 570 customers were without power in the Cotton County area, near Temple. As of 6am, the power company said that number had dropped below 100.

Cotton Electric also reported outages in the Walters and Geronimo areas. The Cotton County Sheriff's Department, though, says it's been a quiet night on the roads for them.

The City of Duncan was also without power earlier this morning, but have reported everything is back up and running.

The Stephens County Sheriff's Department has reported slick roads, with black ice, and have responded to one weather related accident.

In Jefferson County, they say people are heeding the warnings to stay inside.  So far, no major accidents.  They did say US Highway 81 is extremely slick, so make sure you watch for the icy spots if you must travel that road.
