Oklahoma Turnpike Authority spokesman Jack Damrill said Wednesday that Interstate 44 is closed from Chickasha to Newcastle. A large storm that produced tornadoes, heavy rain and damaging winds tracked for several miles along I-44.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. John Vincent said traffic is being diverted at Chickasha and Newcastle.
Vincent also said Interstate 35 is closed at Tecumseh Road in Norman because of power lines blown down and across the interstate. Vincent said southbound lanes of I-35 at Moore are closed because of an auto accident. He didn't know if the accident was related to the storms.
Vincent said he's aware of no fatalities or injuries due to the storms.
