Several homes are still without power from Tuesday night’s storms. City Manager Kim Meek said there are approximately 150 houses still without power.
“With the help of our mutual aid and tree trimming crews we have made significant progress in getting power restored,” she said. “We hope to have them restored by midnight.”
Meek said there was also a “cooling station” at Stephens County Fairgrounds.
“This is for those still without power. They are welcome to come sit, relax, and just cool off,” she said. “The Red Cross has been called in and will provide water and snacks. We ask that they do not bring pets. Also, if they have any medications they need to take please bring it with them.”
The National Weather Service in Norman has issued a heat advisory for Stephens County until 9 p.m., tonight. The heat index is estimated to be from 103 to 108. The heat and humidity may cause heat stress during outdoor exertion or extended exposure.
