Shelter Service in Del City
Del City was named after Delaphene Campbell, the daughter of George Epperly, who was one of the first major settlers in the area and built almost 75% of the homes that existed in 1948. Built as a bedroom community, Del City is part of Oklahoma City’s metropolitan area and is situated just 5 miles from the main city, with two major highways located nearby (Interstates 35 and 40). Some notable features of Del City are its oak trees (blackjack and post) that line the eastern end of the Great Plains and Eagle Lake, which is the only large water body in the city limits.
What makes Del City special is the quaint and calm lifestyle that it promises while also being minutes away from bustling city life. For people working 9 to 5 in Oklahoma City, living in Del City just might be the break they need after a long day at work.
Today, you’ll find entertainment hubs like go-karting services, an interactive aquarium, and various gaming and entertainment centers nearby. But not everything’s quiet and comfortable here in Del City. Because of its proximity to Oklahoma City, it’s almost always under direct threat of deadly tornadoes, with the most violent tornado hitting Del City in the Tornado Outbreak of 1999. Rated as an F5, this tornado destroyed not just Del City but across other neighboring cities and towns, resulting in a harrowing $1 billion worth of damage.
This tornado killed 6 people in Del City but overall took 36 lives across the affected area. Several trees in Del City were plucked out of the ground by the sheer force of this tornado, the absence of which can still be found in the city’s landscape.
