Tens of thousands of people across Green Country are without power after strong winds knocked down trees and knocked out power across the area.

The latest update from PSO had 48,667 customers without power.

Crews are working round the clock to restore power, but it could be Sunday before all the power is restored.

Ed Jones told FOX23 he might as well get something done outside.

Because even though the windows are open, it's hot inside without power.

“It’s reasonably comfortable now but gonna get worse,” he said.

When the storm raged through Tulsa last night - with winds blowing up to 76 miles per hour - Jones was awake.

“Lights started blinking and then they went away,” he said.

At the peak Wednesday morning - crews say 100,000 customers didn't have power. Now Jones is one of thousands still without.

“Do I like losing my power, not at all but it could be worse,” he said.

He said all he can do now is wait.

“What am I supposed to do jump up and down and swear I do that anyway, so,” he said.

Jones only has one thing to say to crews working on the problem.

“Tell public service to hurry up!”
