BREAKING: SPP back to Level 3.
This means we can expect rolling blackouts at any time.
Oklahoma leaders and @OGandE @OklahomaNatural said this change back to LEVEL 3 would force rolling blackouts.
Prepare now & let me know if your power goes out/location
#okwx #poweroutages
Already hearing from some who have lost power in OKC.
@SPPorg just issued LEVEL 3 emergency meaning any of us could lose power now for rolling blackouts. Don’t wait to make your preparations.
#okwx #Oklahoma #WinterStorm #poweroutages
BREAKING: @OGandE confirms WIDESPREAD controlled power outages for portions of the state. OG&E says the outages will last “approximately 2 hours.”
Again, prepare now if you still have power.
#okwx #Oklahoma #WinterStorm #poweroutage
At 7:01am: 57,332 customers without power statewide.
Assuming this number will jump with next update. Of this total-
OG&E— 33,601
If you still have power, take steps now to prepare for rolling blackouts.
#okwx #Oklahoma #poweroutages #WinterStorm
Frigid temperatures this morning across Oklahoma as @OGandE, @PSOklahoma and so many others start rolling blackouts.
-8 in Tulsa
-6 in OKC
Those are actual temperatures and do not include windchill.
#okwx #Oklahoma #WinterStorm #poweroutages
Update: At 7:27am— 68,481 customers without power statewide.
You can see the breakdown among several of the companies with OG&E and PSO with highest number of customers impacted.
#okwx #WinterStorm #poweroutages
PSO map showing more than 24,000 customers without power now across #Oklahoma.
Numbers for the different companies will continue to fluctuate & likely increase as long as @SPPorg stays Level 3 Emergency
If you still have power, prepare now to be without.
#okwx #poweroutages
TULSA was -13 this morning at the airport per @NWStulsa.
4th coldest temperature EVER recorded in Tulsa.
Also happening now- rolling power outages and more snow on the way. 🥶
#okwx #Oklahoma #WinterStorm
Here’s an update about the #texaspoweroutage from @ERCOT_ISO
4.3 million customers remain without power and some have been without for longer than 24 hours.
#txwx #WinterStorm #TexasBlackout
“They didn’t think that it was going to be record cold like this”
Oklahoma @GovStitt tells @NEWS9 @robinmarsh9 when she asks him why Oklahomans didn’t have ANY advance warning about rolling blackouts. Stitt also admits they’ve known since early last week this could happen.
UPDATE as of 10:15 OG&E says they’ve stopped rolling #poweroutages #Oklahoma
Again, as soon as @SPPorg tells them it’s Level 3 emergency, they can start again-WITHOUT warning so stay prepared for outages at any time.
#WinterStorm #poweroutage
PSO corrects information and deletes previous tweet. They now say further outages are NOT needed.
Obviously this is just for THIS MINUTE and could change at any time WITHOUT warning.
#okwx #poweroutage #Oklahoma
Thankful to @NEWS9 and @robinmarsh9 @LacieLowry for their interview w/ Gov. Stitt this morning & for asking the questions so many Oklahomans have right now. Also thanks @StormeJones for posting video clips so we can all see & hear them.
#okwx #WinterStorm #Oklahoma #poweroutage
While the companies have said the panned outages have stopped for now, @PSOklahoma told @Erin_Christy that could change EARLY AFTERNOON.
As in, today, in a few hours.
Not sure why SO MANY have confusing messaging, but you should be ready anytime for outages.
*planned NOT panned. 🤦🏻‍♀️😩
As @GovStitt mentioned yesterday, @POTUS Biden administration officials contacted him about #WinterStorm.
WH @PressSec confirms calls to multiple other states as well including hard hit Texas, where 4M+ are STILL without power.
#okwx #txwx #poweroutage #texaspoweroutage
NEW: SPP says they’ve downgraded to Level 1 stopping the need for rolling outages FOR NOW.
IMPORTANT— SPP says they anticipate due to high load and cold weather, it’s likely the system will fluctuate between EEA levels over next 48 hrs.
Translation-outages could happen anytime.
Guys OKC city leaders including Mayor @davidfholt are holding a presser right now about forecast, roads, airport, etc. with more snow expected later today/tonight.

To say this is alarming is a massive understatement.
Sunday and Monday are usually our days with the lowest numbers reported.
Hearing from hospital nurses and doctors in Tulsa saying this weekend has been “hell.”
I know, I know. The “media” is “fear mongering” and hospitals are trying to “scare people.”
And yet....the numbers tell the same story we’ve been telling for weeks as medical leaders ACROSS THE STATE warned us of this crisis.
Yesterday I had a half hour conversation (MORE)
with my parents going over the data, sharing what I heard this past week from Dr. Dart @TulsaHealthDept and Dr. Malik @StJohnHealthOK who has treated more than 500 #COVID19 patients. We talked about Thanksgiving & I asked them to please do all of their shopping as pick up (MORE)
