Flooding and Storm Damage in Texoma

TEXOMA--The morning begins with news of flooding overnight in Lawton and the surrounding area, including Cache.   Numu Creek in South Lawton was moving very rapidly as all that rain needed somewhere to go.

Wichita Falls was also hit hard by storms overnight.  Police officers tell 7 News there are trees down all over the city.  Some are blocking roadways.   Meanwhile, a fireworks stand on I-44 on the city limits was toppled by high winds.  Power lines are also down.  Some of the heaviest damage is reported on Loop 11, Shepard Air Force Base and Wellington Lane.

These overnight storms also brought power outages to the Lawton area. The folks at AEP/PSO said more than 900 people in Lawton lost power during the height of the storms. As of last report the number had dwindled to about 60 outages.  Crews have been working all morning to restore that service.

As for the rest of southwest Oklahoma, around 2,000 customers were in the dark at one point.  That number is also down, to about 390 as of last report.
