Severe storms rolled through most of Green Country early Tuesday morning, and caused scattered damage across the area.

The most widespread issue is power outages due to fallen limbs and power poles. According to PSO and local power utilities, more than 10,000 customers lost power at the height of the storms.

Most of the outages were in Bartlesville and in Wagoner County, northeast of Broken Arrow, south of Highway 412.

In Bartlesville, there was damage to a gas station near downtown. Strong winds ripped part of the awning off the pump island. There were also scattered trees down and damage to cars and rooftops in the western part of Bartlesville, according to the National Weather Service. Several roads were blocked by trees, mainly south of 14th Street.

Emergency Management said the damage was caused by straight-line winds. Public works crews were out Tuesday morning cleaning up the damage.

In Mayes County, emergency management reported multiple power poles down along Highway 28, about two miles east of Adair. There were also reports of trees down across the road in parts of Pryor.
