FEMA is in the Oklahoma panhandle this afternoon assessing damages left behind from last weekend's storm.
  

A team will view the area that's been buried in up to four feet of snow...and kept families trapped in their home without power. 
 

At this time the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management estimates about 18-hundred customers in Texas and Cimarron counties are still without electricity.    
  

Officials hope all power will be restored by Wednesday or Thursday of next week.
