OKLAHOMA CITY – Storm season is approaching and Oklahoma City residents are being encouraged to register their storm shelter online with the City’s Action Center.

The Storm Shelter Registry allows residents to provide information about their storm shelter so emergency responders can find them if a storm damages their home.

The registry is a free, voluntary service.


The Action Center manager Beth Crounse said, “the number of storm shelter installations has skyrocketed in the past year, so we know there are thousands of new shelters that need to be registered.”

Your shelter information is confidential and will only be shared with emergency responders.
