A relentless ice storm that battered the state for three days has gone, leaving nearly 60,000 Oklahoma Gas & Electric Co. customers in the dark.

As of sundown Sunday, more than 59,000 customers statewide were without electricity, including more than 28,000 in Oklahoma City, according to the OG&E website.

Enid, El Reno and Yukon were also hit hard with more than 3,800 customers without service after dark. More than a thousand customers were also without power in these cities: Bethany, Guthrie, Mustang, Nichols Hills, Piedmont, The Village and Warr Acres, according to OG&E. Another two dozen cities had hundreds of customers waiting for service to be restored at nightfall.

All ice storm and winter weather warnings has expired by noon Sunday.

Gov. Mary Fallin issued a state of emergency Sunday afternoon for all 77 counties affected by freezing rain, ice and sleet. The emergency lasts 30 days and allows to facilitate mutual aid for the estimated 100,000 across the state without electricity.

More than 750 contractors and mutual assistance workers have also arrived in the state to assist utility crews, according to OG&E.

Restoration estimates expected to be released Sunday afternoon by OG&E did not materialize.

Utility workers will restore snapped power lines to the home, but if the cable running down the house has been pulled away from the house or the box that holds the meter, it will have to be repaired by an electrician before service can resume, according to OG&E.

Only seven additional calls for downed power lines were received from midnight to 10 a.m. Sunday, Oklahoma City fire Battalion Chief Benny Fulkerson said.

Five people were taken to a hospital with reported carbon monoxide poisoning from a generator running in the garage of a home, 2720 SW 46 Place, Fulkerson said.

Never run a generator inside a house or garage and keep the machine away from the home and open windows or vents, he said.

Also, a driver whose vehicle went off the road and overturned in a creek was pulled out of the water at 4819 Royal Creek Road. The driver's head was submerged and was still belted into the seat when firefighters arrived, Fulkerson said. The victim's name and condition were not available Sunday.

From midnight to sunset, seven small fires were extinguished at homes across the city.

There is only a 10 percent chance of rain Monday, and sunny skies are expected through the rest of the work week in Oklahoma City, according to the National Weather Service.

Temperatures into the 40s on Monday and the lower 50s on Tuesday, the weather service reports.

No severe weather is forecast in the state the rest of the week, according to the weather service.

Oklahoma City residents are also asked to cut any downed trees or limbs into pieces that are shorter than 12 feet and leave them within 10 feet of the curb. City crews will begin collecting them Dec. 7.
