Libraries Identified as Cooling Stations in SA
It’s August and that means only one thing – it is hot out there! Temperatures are hovering around 100 degrees or higher and the heat index makes it feel like it’s even hotter than it is. As we know, many of our friends and neighbors do not have fans or air conditioning in their homes; combine that prospect with the humidity and scorching temperatures and that can be a big problem – especially for the health of our elderly, children or those with special needs.
Residents are encouraged to seek relief from the heat in libraries, swimming pools, community and senior centers, as well as malls and other locations that can shelter from the high temperatures.
