OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Several thousand people in Oklahoma have had power restored, but more than 3,000 electric customers still remain without power early Monday following a winter storm that dumped freezing rain and ice on the state.

Oklahoma Gas and Electric reported about 2,000 outages Monday morning. Public Service Company of Oklahoma reported about 1,200 outages with less than 1,000 of those in the Tulsa metro area.

PSO says additional workers from Arkansas, Texas and Missouri are assisting crews with the outages, which are mostly individual customers.

The two utilities had an estimated more than 30,000 outages at the height of the storm that began Friday.
