EL RENO - The El Reno Indian Health Center will be reopening their doors at a new location Friday morning. The new building is located at 1801 Parkview Drive in El Reno.

The Indian Health Center will have a grand opening and blessing ceremony at 10 a.m. on Friday (5/31).

The Cheyenne and Arapaho facility was closed after it was heavily damaged in the May 31st tornado.

19 people were killed, including four storm-chasers.

The EF-5 tornado was more than two miles wide with speeds of up to 295 miles per hour. According to the National Weather Service, the El Reno tornado was the widest known tornado on record.

The new health center is reopening thanks to the Clinton Indian Health Service, and the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes.

The center will be open to the public 8 a.m. Monday (6/2).
