OKLAHOMA CITY — More than 100,000 people were without electricity in central Oklahoma on Saturday after the second powerful thunderstorm in two days blew down power lines and damaged buildings, officials said.

Winds up to 90 mph battered the state overnight as a line of storms marched across the Plains from Texas to Kansas. No injuries were reported.

"We believe this to be one of the most damaging storms to hit our system in the history of the company," Oklahoma Gas & Electric said in a statement.

The company said most of the outages were in northwest Oklahoma City.
