      Cooling centers hours expanded due to intense heat

      T he intense heat and high humidity is affecting everyone. B ut senior citizens are impacted more than younger folks.

      C ooling centers have extended their hours for a second day. The Area Office on Aging of Northwestern Ohio extended hours at some of the city's senior centers well into the early evening hours.

      Intense heat can be more than a nuisance, it can be dangerous, and heat stroke and dehydration are real concerns. Warning signs include dizziness and confusion. Experts warn if you start feeling those symptoms call 911 immediately.

      T here will be no e xtended hours planned past Thursday.
