OKLAHOMA CITY — Damaging winds knocked out electricity and overturned trucks on Interstate 40 in western Oklahoma as powerful thunderstorms marched across the state.

No tornadoes were reported in the storms late Sunday and early Monday, but damaging winds and large hail hit many areas of the state. Interstate 40 was closed for about an hour late Sunday in Washita County after two tractor trailers were toppled by winds and was closed again Monday in Caddo County for about two hours because of downed power lines before reopening about 8:45 a.m.

No injuries have been reported. The Storm Prediction Center reports a mobile home was destroyed in Kiowa County and damage to homes in Cotton, Jackson and Stephens counties.

Parts of eastern Oklahoma are under a flash flood watch until 7 p.m. Monday.
