Finally, Kay County power fully restored

Oklahoman Published: March 5, 2013

BLACKWELL -- It took a massive effort over several days, but officials at Kay County Electric say everyone has power again.

Last week's snowstorm knocked out power to more than 4,300 customers, the Ponca City News reported.

Line crews from several locations in and out of state worked hours upon hours to restore the electricity, the News reported.

The weather broke power poles and cross arms, as well as knocking down lines for miles.

One utility official told the News: “As the calls rolled in on Monday night and Tuesday morning, we knew Mother Nature had made her presence in northern Oklahoma. She packed quite a punch — losing more than 500 poles, 200 cross arms and replaced many miles of line.”

The News said the afflicted area of damage was from Medford to Shidler. It took more than 100 workers from nine utility companies to repair it.
