BLANCHARD, Okla. (AP) – Several Oklahoma disaster relief and recovery agencies plan to open a resource center for central Oklahoma residents affected by severe weather and tornadoes.

The Oklahoma Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster will open the Multi-Agency Resource Center on Sunday. It will be located at the Bridge Creek Upper Elementary School in Blanchard.

Residents affected by the storms will be able to meet with representatives of the agencies to see what forms of assistance may be available to help with their recovery.
