The problems on the road could get worse as more storms move in early Friday morning.
FOX23 Meteorologist Michael Haynes said heavy rain and strong winds will move into the area after midnight Friday.
There are still 24 traffic lights out in Tulsa after the severe storm two days ago.
"It's a mess. It's just awful," said Lana Stafford as she described the traffic on 41st Street near Hudson Avenue. The long line of cars backed up from that intersection to Promenade Mall.

"I don't know where they have to go but people are just getting real irritated. I am too because I don't want to get crashed into," she said.

Stafford said it's giving some drivers a reason to be reckless.

"To just be rude drivers to everybody,” she said. “Everybody's getting angry and honking and just cutting you off. I've almost been in three wrecks today."

FOX23 cameras captured a wreck Wednesday. On Thursday, we only captured lots of honking from drivers trying to get through the intersection. Stafford told FOX23’s Dontaye Carter with the heavy rain expected overnight people just need to take their time.

"I hope they'll just go a little bit slower. It is irritating not having all this power but they're going to hurt people," she said.
FOX23 called the city to find out when they expect they expect to turn the traffic lights back on, we were told once PSO restores power the traffic lights will be back on.
