Strong storms are responsible for widespread power outages in Green Country.
According to the Public Service Company of Oklahoma, at 11:30 p.m. 258 customers in Tulsa County and 370 customers in Washington County were without power. According to PSO about 32 homes were still without power in the Tulsa area as of 6 a.m.
Washington County Emergency Management Officials said strong wind caused an RV to roll on its side in Copan on 3960 Road. Also, officials said a semi rolled on its side on Highway 75 eight miles south of Bartlesville. The semi has been moved from the road and traffic is not blocked.
At 11:15 p.m. the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported that US60 at county road S406 is completely closed due to a semi on it's side. A wrecker is on its way. In the meantime drivers need to avoid that area.
Sources tell FOX23 a sun room was demolished on the back of a house just north of Dewey. We are getting reports of tree limbs and signs in roads. Officials want to warn drivers to be cautious of debris on streets in the Bartlesville area.
A FOX23 photojournalist spotted a shredded billboard at 31st and I-44 in Tulsa.
