According to SWEPCO they have called in extra crews from Texas and Oklahoma , but they are not expected to arrive until tomorrow. They say they have around 68,000 without power. Seven major transmission lines are affected and they will work to get them back up first because they supply power to large numbers of people. They say it could be tomorrow before every resident affected has power again. If you have downed lines or trees on line they say you need to call them and let them know at 1-888-218-3919.
