Falling trees knock out power for 50 Lawton residents

Lawton_Public Service Company of Oklahoma (PSO) says that about 50 families in east Lawton lost power on Tuesday morning. 

A woman who lives in the Turtle Creek area says that about 7 a.m. trees fell and toppled power lines.  A tree crew was dispatched to the area to clean it up.  PSO says it had planned to remove the trees, but 100-degree temperatures in July forced them to delay the project since they would have had to turn off power to remove the trees.

Residents without power on Tuesday morning have had power restored.
