OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The state medical examiner's office is using emergency generators to keep its morgue refrigerated after a power outage at its building in Oklahoma City.
Spokeswoman Cherokee Ballard says electricity went out sometime late Sunday night, and the emergency generators were brought in Monday morning.
She says the generators were activated in time to prevent any damage to the corpses or specimens that are kept refrigerated.
Nonessential personnel at the agency were sent home since Ballard says they expect to be without power for the rest of the day.
