OSPF areas

Last Modified: 2015-08-20
My wan is going through a MPLS network. I have OSPF routing implemented between my WAN router and my core switch at my location and I'd like to do the same for my remote location. At my location, I have area 0 (between the WAN router and the core switch) and area 10 for all internal interfaces and SVIs. Now if is it ok for me to use area 10 for my remote site? Is the OSPF area local significance?

PS. BGP is implemented between my WAN router and the MPLS ISP router. We redistribute BGP to OSPF.
