As a heat wave settles into the D.C.-Baltimore region this weekend, cooling centers around the area are opening to help keep residents and the homeless cool.
To help residents deal with the heat, the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission is opening cooling centers across the county. The centers will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. through the week.
A combination of record-high temperatures and temperatures continuing to climb through the weekend has local cooling centers working overtime. Whether you are still without power or desperately just in need of a place to cool off, there is likely a cooling center for you nearby.
