The Claremore Christian School gymnasium will open to the public as a severe weather shelter no later than 3 p.m.

The school is located at 1055 W. Blue Starr Drive.

The occupancy of the building is less than 400 people.

Claremore Ministerial Alliance President John Ray said, “We will have a kids movie playing and basketballs for people to play with.”

The school gym is typically open for severe storms and used by residents of the nearby trailer park. Volunteers from Real Life Church will be staffing the shelter.

The gym will be open until the severe weather has passed.
