Augusta Civic Center Open As A Cooling Center August 12th & 13th
We're having a heatwave... it's true we really are.
With the heat rising rapidly over the next few days, Central Maine is expected to see a heat index value of 95 to 100. Due to the heat index, the City of Augusta has opened the Augusta Civic Center as a cooling center.
The cool center will be open at the Augusta Civic Center on Thursday, August 12th, from 8 am until 5 pm. It will also be open Friday, August 13th, from 8 am until 5 am.
It's important to remember to stay out of the hot sun, drink plenty of fluids, make sure children and pets are not left in hot vehicles, and check on those around you, especially those with compromised immune systems.
If you, or someone you know, doesn't have air conditioning, let them know that the Civic Center is open and ready to cool down anyone in need. Don't hesitate to stop in and cool off!
For additional details, call the City of Augusta at 207 626 2310.
