Local Weather History For December 9th...
One of the most devastating ice storms to occur in Oklahoma history
happened on this day back in 2007. The event began on the 9th and
continued through the 11th and affected much of Oklahoma, especially
southwest, through central and northeast Oklahoma. A very strong cold
front moved through the area on the 9th and initiated widespread
showers and thunderstorms. This heavy rain activity quickly moved
northward over sub-freezing air. Over one-inch of ice was common
across areas from around Lawton, up through the Oklahoma City metro,
to Tulsa and far northeast Oklahoma. Extensive damage was reported
with large trees and several thousand power lines downed.
Firefighters responded to over 100 structure fires as a result of
fallen power lines. This storm was the costliest ice storm in history
with 27 fatalities and over 640,000 residents without power. Out of
the 641,000 without power, 150,000 did not have power for over a
week. Storm cleanup estimates exceeded $200 million statewide.
