All afternoon, Lawton has faced power outages. We have just received official word from Tim Hushbeck of PSO Oklahoma on why power is shutting off then coming back on again.

According to Hushbeck, a ground wire broke off on a transmission line near Central Mall. When the wind catches this loose wire and it strikes something, the power gets interrupted for a little bit. Hushbeck also stated that the problem should be fixed around 4 p.m., and to still expect interruptions as PSO works on repairs.
