Tulsa, Okla. - A surprisingly powerful thunderstorm rocked south Tulsa Friday afternoon, knocking down power lines and tree limbs and closing down Lewis Avenue between 71st and 81st streets near the Oral Roberts University campus.
KRMG's Russell Mills reported there were at least a dozen power poles leaning precariously over Lewis Avenue and that lots of power lines were lying in the roadway, some of those possibly live.
There were also reports of lots of downed limbs and other wind damage around 71st and Lewis and 71st and Riverside.
Tulsa police and firefighters have blocked off S. Lewis Ave. in both northbound and southbound directions from S. 71st St. to S. 81st St.
PSO crews on the scene tell KRMG it could possibly take days to fix all the damage.
They said it's possible they will have to call in crews from out of town to pitch in and help effect repairs.
There were no injuries reported.
In a possibly related incident, a small plane apparently crashed at the R.L Jones Riverside Airport near Jenks.
KRMG's Chris Cordt reports seeing the craft sitting nose down on the runway.
It is unclear at this writing whether the plane was landing or taking off, and whether the storms possibly played a role in the apparent crash.
Further details will be posted here and aired live on AM 740 FM 102.3 Newstalk KRMG.
