OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Nearly 4,000 central Oklahoma residents and almost 1,900 in Comanche County are without power following strong overnight thunderstorms.

The Oklahoma Gas & Electric Co. website shows that as of Wednesday morning there were more than 2,000 outages in Oklahoma City and more than 1,100 outages in Shawnee with other outages in Bethany, Del City, Nichols Hills and Sapulpa. Public Service Company of Oklahoma reported the outages in Comanche County.

Local media outlets reported high winds had downed power lines and tree limbs across the Oklahoma City metro area as storms with heavy rain moved east. Some cars were stranded in high water in Oklahoma City.

The National Weather Service said there will be another chance for storms Wednesday afternoon with half dollar-sized hail and 65 mile per hour winds.
