Power outage problems continue across Oklahoma again on Sunday.  State-wide nearly 95,000 electric customers are still without power. KTEN's Hailee Holliday has the story.

          People's Electric Coroprative in Ada say as of 5:15  Sunday afternoon they have around 4,200 customers without power.   Officials say it could take at least a week before every customer's power is back on.   They say the accumulation of over an inch of ice caused over 200 poles in the area to fall. Officials say the areas that received the most damage is the east area of Ada and Ashland.  They say they also lost power again on Sunday in the Allen area.      Officials say they are trying extremely hard to restore all power in these problem areas.

PEC's, Monica Cowart, says,  "We have already called in crews.  We have crews coming from the south and in Texas.  We have crews coming from the Stillwater area and we have contacted all of the contractors that we're aware of".

      Officials say it is taking longer to fix the problem areas because of the severe pole damage.      They say many individual outages are the result of trees falling on the poles.  Officials say if you have a power outage, please report it as soon as possible.   PEC says to report an outage please call their toll free number at  1-877-272-1500.
