Storm Knocks Out Power, Injures 5 In Calera


CALERA, OK -- A heavy storm left five people injured, pushed trees down, and knocked out power.

It happened Sunday evening as high wind and rains passed through, leaving behind a trail of damage.

Just about every yard had tree branches scattered around, and some people were walking around outside their darkened houses, looking at fallen branches in their yards.

A trailer appeared to have flipped over along the Highway 69/75 frontage road just north of Main Street.  Nearby, the roof over the gasoline pumps at EZMart was badly damaged and the gas pumps were marked off with caution tape.

Calera police chief Don Hyde says five people were taken to the hospital because of injuries in the storm, and says the power will be out until Monday.

Hyde advises if you need information about relatives to call the Calera Police Department at 580-434-7000.

Calera schools and the town hall will be closed on Monday.
