Heat prompts Salvation Army to open four cooling centers
The Salvation Army of Omaha plans to open four cooling centers Monday for residents needing relief from the heat.
The centers are open from 11 am to 8 pm Monday and Tuesday. They’re at the Kroc Center at 28th and Y Streets, the North Corps at 24th and Pratt, The Council Bluffs Corps, and the Lied Renaissance Center.
Salvation Army officials say the cooling centers will be open whenever temperatures reach 90 degrees or more for at least two days.
Temperatures are expected to reach the mid to upper 90s in the Omaha metro area Monday and Tuesday.
