Work to restore power continues across Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Work continues today to restore power to
thousands of homes and businesses left in the dark by an ice storm
that's also blamed for at least 17 deaths in the state.

PSO spokesman Stan Whiteford says more than 27,000
customers are still without electricity with more than 14,000
of those in the McAlester area.

Oklahoma Gas and Electric reports more than 15,000.

And the National Weather Service says subfreezing temperatures
are expected to continue today and tomorrow with little sunshine to
help melt the ice.
