LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -Electric service crews have cleared up a large number of the power outages across Texoma, but there are still some people without power.

“During major storms, we often find "work arounds" to get customers back on while permanent repairs underway. That practice, along with estimates on factors outside our control (accessibility, other systems, etc.) are reflected in our estimated restoration times. This can mean we occasionally have to extend estimates but it can also result in us beating our estimates. Our hearts go out to those of you impacted by this storm. Please know we are making every effort to restore your power,” PSO said in a statement.

“We estimate that power will be restored gradually to the Cache and Indiahoma areas beginning later this afternoon. This process will take several hours as we add load gradually throughout the afternoon and evening. We estimate this process will be completed by midnight. Our power use advisor is recommending turning off power to appliances and other items in the house so breakers are not overloaded when electricity is restored,” Cotton Electric said in a statement.

"With the exception of El Reno, all substations have now been energized by WFEC, our power supplier. Each of those substations are only partially serviceable at the moment and there are multiple contractor crews working on each substation," Caddo Electric said in a statement.
