The 2 Works for You weather team is monitoring a severe weather risk coming through Green Country.

Severe storms began moving through the area after 9 p.m. on Wednesday with far western parts of our viewing area seeing heavy rain and high winds.

A tornado warning was issued for Osage County near Pawhuska, but it expired at 11 p.m.


In Pawnee County, residents reported transformers blew out due to high winds in Cleveland and Westport. Crews worked to restore about 100 power outages in that area.

Dime- and quarter-sized hail and high winds (50-60mph) hit the Bartlesville-Dewey area about 11 p.m. There were reports of power outages and some wind damage to trees and buildings.

Storms to the immediate west of Tulsa began to weaken late in the evening. Meteorologists say heavy rain, lightning and wind gusts still should be expected near Tulsa overnight.

Earlier Wednesday evening, the state's first tornado of the season reportedly touched down in Western Oklahoma in Shattuck. No injuries have been reported.
