In northeastern Oklahoma, Miami received about 13 inches of snow, said Glenda Longan, the city’s emergency management director.

City workers have rescued 10 stranded motorists, she said.

City and county offices are closed.

Snow drifts up to 6-feet tall were reported in the westbound lane of the Will Rogers Turnpike, said Oklahoma Turnpike Authority spokesman Jack Damrill.

“The roads are very slick and hazardous,” Damrill said. “There have been no injury accidents but we had a couple of semis hit the turnpike wall.”

Around 100 AEP-PSO customers in Broken Arrow are without service, said Andrea Chancellor, utility spokeswoman.

Also 50 customers in Bartlesville have reported no service and outages have been reported in Hugo and Wright City, she said.
