CARTER COUNTY, Okla. -- Residents of several Carter County communities will soon be able to get financial help if they're interested in building a storm shelter.

Carter County Emergency Management will be holding meetings to register for the individual safe room rebate, which covers 75 percent (up to $2,000) of the installation cost.
