Storm causes damage across Texoma

BRYAN COUNTY, Okla.- Another night of severe weather across Texoma leaves several people cleaning up Thursday night.

A night at Choctaw Casino under the bright lights turned into a night of confusion for many.

When we arrived at Choctaw Casino, casino-goers claim they were left in the dark when the power went out.

The lights were back on after about an hour, but some patrons leaving the casino say it was a little chaotic.

Velton Adams says he was at the slot machines when the power went out. He says it wasn't completely dark, “You could see in some places but in other places it was dark.”

Adams only lost about five bucks, but he still had to cash out and says that's what took forever.

We tried speaking with management, but were told to check back Friday.

The nursing home right across the street from the casino also had an eventful night.

The roof at Calera Manor was struck by lightening. Workers didn't take long to make repairs. No word on a damage estimate.

Also in Bryan County, there have been reports of a barn blown over near Durant and the roof of a mobile home damaged.
