A place to cool off
Anyone who needs relief from this sweltering heat can cool off at the King George Citizens Center, on State Route 3 across from the Food Lion shopping center.
The cooling shelter is open until 7 p.m. today and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow. It provides an air-conditioned seating area and cold water. No food is available.
Officials will evaluate the heat conditions next week and reopen the shelter, if needed. More information is available at 775-4386.
