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.
