Cooling centers open as heat wave takes hold

With temperatures expected soar into the 90s this week, two cooling centers have opened in Glendale to provide seniors a place to stay out of the heat.

The Adult Recreation Center, 201 E. Colorado St., will operate its cooling center 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Thursday; and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

The cooling center at Sparr Heights Community Center, 1613 Glencoe Way, will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday and Tuesday; 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday; and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday.

Officials also renewed calls to keep hydrated and take precautions to protect pets. In some part of the inland valleys, temperatures could hit triple degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

Dizziness, headaches, increased thirst, faintness, fatigue and muscle cramps are common symptoms of dehydration, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.
