There are more than 4,000 people with electricity in the Greater Oklahoma City Metro Area. This power outage is also causing low water pressure and no water at all for some in the impacted area. According to a March 1 report by KFOR News in Oklahoma City, it is unknown when the problem will be fixed.

All of this is just hours before a winter storm is expected in the Oklahoma. The wind chill is expected to be at or below zero tonight and tomorrow. Snow, sleet and freezing rain is expected throughout most of the state. Only the far southeastern portion of Oklahoma appears to be safe from the cold. However, residents in southeastern Oklahoma are being told to expect rain and thunder.

Crews from OG&E are currently working on getting power restored. At the time of publication, they had yet to find the cause of the power outage. Residents in south Oklahoma City, Norman, Little Axe and Choctaw are hoping power and water are restored before the latest winter storm hits.
