A powerful storm has hit Oklahoma and the southern Plains today – which also happens to be the first day of spring. Reports say that the storm has brought heavy snow and strong winds that may create blizzard-type conditions in Oklahoma.
Officials have reported that the strong winds of up to 40 mph could cause blowing snow and may even hamper NCAA tournament games scheduled for this Saturday and Sunday in Oklahoma City.
This Oklahoma winter storm has led to the State Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and the state is contacting all help centers incase the storm gets big.
The storm in Oklahoma has led to increasing curiosity on the Oklahoma road conditions.
