More than 6,000 homes in the Oklahoma City area were left without power after thunderstorms rolled through the state early Thursday.

The storm knocked down power lines in several locations across the metro area, including along Wilshire Boulevard between Piedmont and Mustang. About 6,200 homes were without power at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Oklahoma Gas and Electric Co. officials reported.

Power had been restored to nearly all of those homes by Thursday evening, the utility reported.

An Oklahoma Mesonet weather network site in north Oklahoma City measured .8 inches of rain Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

Another Mesonet site in west Oklahoma City measured just over an inch of rainfall.

The storm brought heavier rains to other parts of the state, including areas in drought-stricken northwest Oklahoma. A Mesonet site in Camargo, in Dewey County, measured 1.94 inches of rain on Thursday.
