MEDICINE PARK, OK (KSWO) -According to Cotton Electric’s outage map, there are more than 700 people around Medicine Park without power. 

The Medicine Park Community Center has opened its doors as a warming center to help those without power. The Red Cross donated cots, blankets, water and dry snacks for those who want to stay there.

Dwight Cope, Medicine Park Board of Trustees, says the facility has everything one could need to get by during these cold days.

"It has a generator on it that will run the facility, keep it warm, keep it lit. There are showers and bathrooms. There is a full kitchen available, as you see can see here, that will be available as well," Cope said.

A few people have already taken advantage of the warming station and stayed there Monday night. Cope says anyone who wants to stay should call 405-802-1324 and they will make arrangements to let you in.
