The Verdigris Valley Electric Company reported several power outages this morning. According to Kim Loffler, about 1600 were without power as of 9:00, but according to Randy Riddle, that number has since been reduced to only 700 without power.

68 of their power poles were broken in Washington County in last nights storms, and 26 poles were broken in Nowata County. Riddle says they hope to have power restored before dark.

Loffler says that VVEC has all of their crews out working to restore power, including two contracted construction crews.
