BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Splash pads in the City of Buffalo will be open for an extra hour on Monday night, due to the excessive heat.
4 WARN WEATHER | Heat exhaustion possible as heat indices soar to near 100º
The city made the announcement on Monday morning, saying the splash pads will remain open until 8 p.m. Each day, weather conditions will be evaluated to determine whether or not the splash pads will stay open longer.
“When the heat index pushes into the 90s, we are pleased to keep the splash pads open an extra hour and encourage residents to take advantage of this way to beat the heat,” Mayor Byron Brown said. “I also remind residents to be cautious about over-exertion during this week’s high heat and excessive humidity. Please check on your older family members, neighbors and friends to make sure they are staying cool and hydrated.”
