The power is back on in far east Tulsa. This after straight line winds toppled and snapped  power poles along 129th East Avenue between 41 and 51st Streets.

The outage impacted about 700 Public Service Company customers. Crews from PSO, Cox Communications and the phone company were quick to respond with new poles and restored the service in just a couple of hours.

The lines went down when the leading edge of the storm moved through that part of Tulsa.
