Tree Limbs Snap as Ice Storm Hits Central Oklahoma

An ice storm has downed trees and cut power to thousands in central Oklahoma on Tuesday, October 27, according to local media reports.

Oklahoma Gas and Electric said 201,000 customers were without power as of 12.30 pm on Tuesday. The electric company said outages were primarily caused by ice accumulations snapping tree limbs and then damaging nearby power lines.
