OKLAHOMA CITY -

A group hoping to install storm shelters in all Oklahoma public schools is holding its final signature-collection event this evening.

"Take Shelter Oklahoma" needs 160,000 signatures to put a measure on the state ballot to fund school storm shelters. The measure would ask voters to approve $500 million in state bonds to pay for the construction of those shelters.
