OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Officials say the Draper Water Treatment Plant in Oklahoma City was knocked off line during the tornado.

The city is asking residents and businesses in southeast Oklahoma City to stop using water.

Crews are working to restore electricity to the plant with generators, and OG&E is on the scene and trying to reconnect power lines.

The city is asking that people make sure their sprinkler systems are turned off and that they postpone washing dishes and clothes and not operate appliances that use water.
