More help is being offered to the victims of recent storms across Oklahoma.

Three more centers were announced Saturday and can be found in Sapulpa, Stillwater, and Henryetta, to give storm victims a chance to get the help they need.

The first center opened in Sapulpa Saturday morning at 7. Centers in Stillwater and Henryetta will open on Tuesday.

Representatives from FEMA and the Small Business Administration were on hand at the Creek County Commissioner's Ballroom to get details about storm damage and to help victims fill out applications.

The Sapulpa center and Stillwater center will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., for as long as people need help. The Henryetta clinic is only open from Tuesday, June 25 to June 27.

One representative from the Small Business Administration said they can help with a lot more than just businesses.

"The important thing for people to understand is the SBA in a disaster provides loans to virtually everybody-- homeowners, renters, nonprofits," said Small Business Administration Public Information Officer David Reetz. "We have funds available to fill in the gaps."

You're asked to bring information like your address, insurance info and bank account numbers to see if you qualify.
