Cooling centers open across Brooklyn to help residents beat rising temperatures
With Tuesday set to be the hottest day so far this summer, the city has opened 300 cooling centers.
The Sheepshead Nostrand Community Center says the facility may extend its hours if the sweltering temperatures continue.
If remaining in the cool confined areas of a local center is not an option, the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) urges Brooklyn residents to remain hydrated by drinking plenty of water or diluted juices. OEM asks residents to avoid alcohol and caffeine drinks since they do little to quench dehydration.
OEM also asks residents to avoid strenuous activity during the sun?s peak times.Related Link:
