PSO says there are now 15,896 customers without power in their coverage area.

That’s down from nearly 100,000 at the peak of the storm.

On Friday afternoon PSO posted a new hotline number on their website.

Customers who would like an updated estimate of when power will be restored for their address should contact PSO’s Customer Solutions Center at 1-888-216-3523.

Officials said crews are working ahead of schedule and they've moved the timetable for power restoration up to 5 p.m. on Saturday, it was originally expected to be restored by Sunday at the same time.

PSO officials broke down power outages based on location for FOX23 on Thursday.

The southwest quadrant is the area near 31st & Sheridan south and west, there are 4,000 outages in that location. PSO thinks this is because of the large number of trees in this area.

The southeast quadrant includes 31st & Sheridan south and east, includes Broken Arrow and Coweta. That area has 245 outages.

The northwest quadrant covers 31st & Harvard north and west. That area has 8,500 outages. PSO said that is another area with a lot of trees.

The northeast quadrant covers 31st & Harvard north and east, including Owasso. That area has 2.900 outages.

PSO said the breakdown of where outages are is more concentrated and helps them focus on areas that need to be repaired.

They also released this map of expected restoration times for areas of Tulsa.
