Shawnee/Pottawatomie County Emergency Management Director Don Lynch on Wednesday gave an overview of issues caused by storms Tuesday night.
OG&E reported more than 2,400 were without power following the storms, with power restored at different intervals through the evening and overnight hours.
Lynch said the straight line wind damage in Shawnee as a result of a severe thunderstorm occurring about 6:30 to 7 p.m. primarily impacted an area bounded by Independence Street on the South, Federal Street on the North, Kickapoo Street on the West and Market Street on the East.
Approximately 14 locations were reported with fallen Bradford Pear and Oak tree limbs that were one-inch diameter or less, he said. There was a report of a tree through the roof of house in the 1600 Block of North Louisa, he said, but that had not been confirmed. Minor tree limbs were found along Independence Street between Bryan Street and Center Street, he said, and a damaged trampoline was blown into vacant field South of MacArthur and East of Bryan Street.
Street flooding occurred in the following locations: Bell Street & 7th Street; Benedict Street and the Railroad bridge East of Leo Street; Independence Street in several locations from Bryan Street to Union Street; Kickapoo and Kickapoo Spur; Kennedy Street and Locust.
