Severe weather disrupts power, flips vehicles in Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Severe thunderstorms have overturned cars in the Oklahoma City area and knocked out power for thousands of people stretching into the southern part of the state.

A line of strong thunderstorms rumbled across Oklahoma Tuesday morning, prompting the National Weather Service to issue tornado, thunderstorm and flood warnings.

Strong winds flipped vehicles in the parking lot of a department store in Midwest City where a tornado warning was in effect, but no injuries were reported. High water from heavy rainfall also closed roads in the area.

The storm cut power to more than 3,000 Oklahoma Gas & Electric customers including more than 1,100 in the Oklahoma City area. Officials at the Oklahoma City Zoo say it was forced to temporarily close due to power outages and minor wind damage.
