The City of Buffalo will open three cooling centers on Saturday and Sunday to help people who are suffering from the heat and do not have access to air-conditioned space.
The National Weather Service is forecasting temperatures in the upper 80s and low 90s, combined with high humidity.
"The combination of near-record high temperatures and extremely high humidity, will result in "real feel" conditions that feel like triple digits. These conditions will be particularly difficult for our elderly and young children," Mayor Brown said. "It's important for all our residents to take the necessary precautions to stay cool and hydrated, and please keep an eye on your vulnerable neighbors."
The cooling centers located at Autumnwood Senior Center, 1800 Clinton St., and the Richmond/Summer Senior Center, will be open both Saturday and Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The center at the Broadway Market Senior Drop-In Center, will be open Saturday only, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
