(Oklahoma City-AP) -- The state Health Department says financial problems and other difficulties are forcing two nursing homes to close.

Cyril Nursing Center in Caddo County and Ringling Nursing Center in Jefferson County have 90 days to relocate residents of the homes.

Dorya Huser of the Health Department says both centers are less than half full and each has been found to have several deficiencies.

The nursing homes are the 40th and 41st nursing homes in Oklahoma to close since May 2000.
