Severe storms Thursday night left a trail of damage and thousands in the dark without power across Texoma.

A vacant building in downtown Ardmore was damaged at Washington and S. East St. The building didn’t have a roof, but high winds caused some of the wall and bricks to come down. No injuries were reported.

The city pool in Madill sustained substantial damage to its office building and bathrooms, and it will be forced to close for the remainder of the summer.

There were multiple reports of power poles and lines down, trees down, and damage to outbuildings in Pontotoc County, as well as Johnston and Murray counties, after the National Weather Service confirmed wind gusts of up to 90 miles per hour near Fittstown.

There are also trees and limbs down across Grayson County after a severe storm with winds clocked at 60 miles per hour moved through late Thursday evening.

As of 9 a.m. Friday, Oncor reports 1.683 customers in Grayson County without power. OG&E reports 234 customers without power in Ardmore, 509 in Davis, 742 in Sulphur, and 197 in Tishomingo
