Original Story:

Less than 30,000 people remain without power in Tulsa County on Friday, as power crews work around the clock to repair outages from Tuesday night's storms.

As of about 8 a.m. Friday, PSO reports 27,196 people in Tulsa Co. and 797 in Osage Co. remain in the dark.

The company has called in resources to help with restoration from about ten surrounding states.

Because of the progress, PSO moved up the estimated restoration time up, and expect to have everyone's power back on by Saturday at 5 p.m.

And some area residents may be wondering why their neighbors have power, but they still don't?

PSO posted this on their Facebook page for those that may be asking the same question:

"If some of your neighbors have power, but you don't, crews may have fixed fixing facilities that serve one portion of the neighborhood, but your electricity might be served from a different direction. Different crews may be working on that."

And if your home is the only one without power in your neighborhood, you may read a few of these explanations PSO provided:

- Fuses or circuit breakers in your home could have tripped and halted power

- Tree limbs could have fallen on the line serving your home

- Fuses on the transformer that serves your home may have tripped or could be damaged, and the primary line feeding the transformer could be damaged.

PSO also wants to remind all customers to report power outages if they haven't already. Call them at 1-888-216-3523.
