Energy restoration efforts continue

May 27 – Power has been restored to 65% of the Claremore area as of Monday afternoon, according to a news release.

“The hardest hit areas are still without power, but crews are working around the clock to repair damage,” City Manager John Feary said in the news release.

Electricity was out throughout the area due to a storm late Saturday that spawned a tornado.

“We are grateful for the support of public power communities who responded to a call for mutual aid,” Feary said. “GRDA, Edmond, Miami, Skiatook, Stillwater, Tahlequah, Pryor and the City of Siloam Springs, Arkansas are members of the Municipal Electric Systems of Oklahoma (MESO) and critical to supporting municipal electric systems in times of emergency.”

The release also stated:

— The curfew from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. has been extended until June 1.

– City and county officials are asking residents to stack green waste, such as tree limbs and brush, in lengths of 10 feet or less next to the road so it is away from gas and water meters. While a plan for public salvage and collection is being developed, there is currently no public salvage location available.
