Storm affects Tulsa businesses

Chrissy Hammons does makeovers for a living.

Hammons planned for months and eventually opened Salon Imbue last October.
"It was really cute," said Hammons.

Tuesday night's storm left her with loads of unexpected work.

"When I opened the door I was really shocked," said Hammons.

Winds of nearly 80 mph snatched an air conditioner unit off the roof. It left a hole and rain filled the gap.
Hammons' midtown salon sits in one of Tulsa's hardest-hit areas.

Hammons shares the damage with an entire strip mall. FOX23 has learned the City of Tulsa will tend to Midtown damage last. The timing will give folks like Hammons more time to get rid of their mess.

"I have stylists that rely on me," said Hammons.

Hammons will move her salon to another spot on this strip. She'll move it all back once repairs are made.

"It was really clean and cute yesterday," said Hammons.

The City of Tulsa said it will divide the city into quadrants: north, east, south and west. Crews will gather debris from the outside in. Debris pickup will take place Monday.
