Saturday is clean-up day in south Tulsa, following last night's mirco-burst from a collapsing thunderstorm. Winds rushing from the storm knocked out power, toppled signs and trees and lifted shingles from roofs.
The worst damage is around the intersection of 81st and South Lewis. Tulsa Police sealed off the area as utility crews from PSO and other nearby companies scrambled to get power lines out of streets and the power restored. On Saturday morning, PSO reported several hundred customers still off-line.
A severe thunderstorm collapsed over south Tulsa Friday evening. Strong winds of a microburst caused damage near 81st and South Lewis. The Sonic Drive-In lost its sign because of the winds and trees were downed on the Oral Roberts University Campus and across the street at the City Plex Towers, the site of the old City of Faith Hospital.
