NORMAN — Thousands of OG&E customers were affected by a power outage on Sunday evening with reports of outages in both Norman and Noble.

A total of 3,167 customers were without power at 6:15 p.m. on Sunday, according to OG&E’s System Watch website. That included 3,017 customers in Norman, 94 customers in Noble and 56 in Warr Acres.

OG&E representative Christina Dukeman reported around 2,100 power outages in Norman from about 6:30 p.m. to just before 9 p.m. on Sunday.

Dukeman said the cause of the outages in Norman were not officially confirmed, but they believe it was probably caused by a bad circuit they have since fixed.

The Norman Transcript and the Cleveland County Courthouse as well as businesses in the downtown area were among some of the affected power customers.

Around 9:30 p.m. the System Watch website showed all power had been restored in Cleveland County.
