Storms Wack Northwest Oklahoma

Enid, OK – Severe storms knock out power in northern Oklahoma
ENID, Okla. (AP) Severe thunderstorms knocked down tree limbs and electric power lines in northern Oklahoma, but there were no reports of injuries.
The National Weather Service says thunderstorms with winds estimated at 60 mph brought down large tree limbs and electric lines in Kremlin and Enid in Garfield County late Friday. A 60-mph wind gust also was reported in Blaine County near Southard.
Oklahoma Gas and Electric reported 467 customers without power in Enid and Kremlin.
The storms formed along a weak cold front that pushed through the state. More storms were possible on Saturday but most of Oklahoma was expected to see a continuation of hot, dry weather.
Forecasters say another cold front may track into the region by the middle of next week.
