May 19, 2013 – May 20, 2013 The storms began normally enough—for an Oklahoma spring


storm. Stan Ledgerwood, OEC's manager of logistics, was lucky to have been out of the path of this near baseball-size hail (below) that came down with such velocity, it created a three-inch deep divot in his Northwest Norman yard. Then the storm turned tornadic and went toward Little Axe and


Shawnee. District Lineman Gary Jones shot this image (right) of a circuit recloser on fire near Lake Thunderbird.

field restoring power to OEC members, Jones's own home was hit by the May 20 tornado. He


was one of two OEC employees so affected. Vu Nguyen, IT systems engineer, was directly impacted by


Monday's tornado, as well, when it grazed by his home off Western, just south of SW 149th Street (below). He has lived in his home for only one month after recently finishing renovations. "Everyone in my neighborhood banded together to help each


other," said Nguyen. "People from all over the community came out to help neighbors salvage their homes and cover roofs and windows with tarp to help protect them from the coming rains." Both Jones and Nguyen were back to work by Wednesday:


Jones setting poles (right) and running new line with the assistance of Tri-County Electric Cooperative from Hooker, Okla., and Nguyen in the office ensuring computers are operational.
