Overnight storms in Green Country left some damage and folks without power in several areas.

Right now, there have been reports of debris, downed tress and some roads blocked due to the downed trees and power lines in Okmulgee County.

There have also been reports of damage to the roofs of some buildings, as well as trees going into homes.

The roof of the OSU-IT Campus Police building even blew off.

Okmulgee County Emergency Management said the storm swept through around 5 a.m. starting at Okmulgee Lake.

The worst damage crews have surveyed so far is east of Okmulgee through the rural area to Morris.

OCEM has declared a state of emergency and is asking residents to stay home to keep safe. Crews are going to determine if the damages were caused by straight line winds.

There have been no reports of any injuries.

Many people are focusing on picking up the pieces of debris and damage caused by the storms.

“We’re just trying to cleanup now to see what we can do next," said Brian Summers. "We’ve got power lines down. We can’t go in the backyard and do anything.”

OCEM said reports of storm damage can be made on their website or you can call 918-759-9984.
