DEWEY, Oklahoma — The American Red Cross is setting up a cooling station at a local church to aid victims of Monday's severe storms who are still without power as temperatures climb back into the 90s.

The relief organization says the facility is located at Bluestem Baptist Church in Dewey. It will also provide meals to victims.

On Tuesday, Red Cross volunteers say they provided more than 340 meals and 700 snacks to Bartlesville residents.

Storms swept through northeastern Oklahoma on Monday, knocking out electricity to many areas, downing tree limbs and power lines in Craig, Osage and Nowata counties. No injuries were reported.
