TULSA, Oklahoma -

Mayor G.T. Bynum is urging Oklahomans to spend their dollars at the businesses damaged in the city's recent EF2 tornado. Many businesses are reopening along the East 41st Street shopping corridor.

“I urge Tulsans to support and frequent our friends and neighbors that are open for business following the tornado,” Mayor G.T. Bynum said. 

“The 41st and Yale corridor received a substantial amount of damage and to have businesses operational today truly shows how resilient our community is.”

The City's Information Technology Department put together a map of businesses open within the area impacted by the tornado. Those businesses are represented by green stars on the map which can be seen here.

Businesses that remain closed are noted with a red star.
