“It was the most amazing sound I’ve heard in a long time,” recounted resident Sherry Bruster, who’s lived in her midtown home since 1981. “I thought the roof was going to go.”
A new batch of potentially violent thunderstorms could hit the same area when they are forecast to clip eastern Oklahoma late today and early Friday, according to the National Weather Service in Tulsa.
The service predicts highs in the low 90s today.
“This is one of the worst storms we’ve seen hit Tulsa,” American Electric Power-Public Service Company of Oklahoma president Stuart Solomon said Wednesday at a news conference at City Hall, where he announced that extra crews from out of state were being tapped to help restore power. “There is widespread damage throughout the entire city.”
