The centers operated jointly by the Oklahoma Department of Civil Emergency Management and the Federal Emergency Management Agency are located at National Guard armories in El Reno, Enid and Weatherford and at Hutchins Memorial Auditorium in Ponca City.
The centers are open from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
