Hugo, OK – A contract for the city of Hugo to sell up to 75 billion gallons of water from Hugo Lake to the Dallas-area suburb of Irving each year has angered other north Texas water providers.
Several permit applications and federal lawsuits have been filed in an attempt to end Oklahoma's ban on selling water to Texas. Each seeks to obtain some of the 1.4 million acre-feet of ``excess'' water that flows through the lake in far southeastern Oklahoma each year.
Oklahoma City, OK – Severe thunderstorms knocked down power poles and dropped so much hail, it looked like winter in part of the Oklahoma Panhandle.
There were no reports of structural damage or injuries with the storms, which pounded northern, western and central Oklahoma last night. Nearly 8,900 customers were without electricity in central sections of the state.
According to the National Weather Service, winds gusted to between 60 an 70 miles per hour, mainly west of Interstate 35.
