OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) — Oklahoma Gas & Electric (OG&E) crews are still working to get power fully restored in Oklahoma City and surrounding areas nearly two weeks after a historic ice storm knocked out power to hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses.

OG&E personnel previously said power would be restored to all customers by Friday, but that timetable was not met.

There were 3,255 power outages in Central Oklahoma as of 5 p.m. Monday.

OG&E crews have so far restored power to nearly 500,000 customers.
