Cooling centers to open with oppressive heat bearing down outside

Local News

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Cooling centers will open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to aid city residents suffering from the heat and don’t have access to air conditioning, Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown announced on Thursday.

The mayor says this comes the National Weather Service’s forecast of “oppressively warm and humid” conditions.

“With the season’s hottest weather expected to settle over Buffalo this weekend, we’re asking residents to protect themselves and other from the potential effects of extreme heat,” said Brown, D-Buffalo.

Several of the centers will open Friday and continue to operate throughout the weekend.

City pools and splash pads will also be open.
