OKLAHOMA — In wake of the ice storm that froze Oklahoma, Red Cross has opened warming stations in Oklahoma City, El Reno, and Enid.

Thousands of Oklahomans have been left without power and it is nearly freezing outside.

OG&E officials have hinted that it may take a few days for power to be fully restored, so New Hope Methodist Church in Enid has opened its doors to those who are in need of heat.

The church is located at 614 N. Garland.

A second Enid location has opened at the Salvation Army in the 500 block of N. Independence.

Road conditions are reportedly fair, so traveling to the warm station shouldn’t be an issue.

Red Cross officials will determine later if the location will be converted to an overnight shelter.

First United Methodist Church is also open for residents without power in Oklahoma City, located at 131 NW 4th St.

Residents of Canadian County can get some warmth at the Jenks Simmons building in El Reno, located at 214 N. Country Club.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars in Crescent is also open for those in need of a warm place to stay. They’ll open as a shelter overnight.
