Heat advisory prompts opening of St. Louis area cooling centers

Jun 14, 2016

The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat advisory for the St. Louis area until 7 p.m. Thursday. Temperatures are expected in the mid-to-upper 90's, with high humidity levels, on both Wednesday and Thursday.

Those who need relief from the heat can seek shelter at cooling stations across the area.

The Salvation Army routinely responds to heat advisories by opening cooling centers where people can rest in air conditioned rooms and receive cold water. The cooling centers will remain open during their individually posted hours until the heat advisory is lifted.

The Salvation Army Corps Midland Division is teaming up with The United Way and local service organizations to operate 18 cooling centers across the greater St. Louis metro area.
