LIST: Cooling centers in the Bay Area offer heat wave relief

Bay Area

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — An incoming heat wave for the Bay Area has cooling centers anticipating some visitors.

Meteorologists say this Labor Day weekend will see some record-breaking temperatures, expecting Sunday and Monday especially to hit the triple digits.

Already on Friday, inland areas reached 90 degrees. And while this may tempt some to cool down with air conditioning, a statewide Flex Alert for California is discouraging that this weekend. The state’s Independent System Operator advises residents to conserve energy between 3-9 p.m. during the heat wave.

Cooling centers can be an option for people who need shelter from the heat, or can’t afford using air conditioning during the heat wave.

The centers will be open starting Saturday.
