As Temperatures Soar, Area Residents Seek Ways to Cool Down
By Brady Smith, Reporter
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa -- With heat indexes expected to climb into the upper 90’s and even over 100 degrees, area school districts are announcing early dismissals to keep kids cool.
The city of Cedar Rapids’ parks and recreation department is hosting a “Last Blast!” swimming event at Noelridge Aquatic Center from 1 to 5 p.m. Monday. But with many city pools already closed during the week for the year, it may be one of the last chances to dip into cool water amidst the heat wave.
The Cedar Rapids Salvation Army is preparing to open a cooling and relief center this week, offering a place for people without air conditioning to escape the high temperatures. They’ll have cold water on hand at their 1000 C Ave. NW location.
