Cooling centers, pools offering relief from extreme heat

Thursday is a day to stay safe in this dangerous heat.

The Fifth-Third Tennis Tournament will continue at the University of Kentucky, and it is a scorcher even for those watching the matches.

Lexington is under an excessive heat warning.

Because of that, city officials are opening two cooling centers.

One is at the Dunbar Community Center on North Upper Street. It will be open until 8:30 p.m.

The other is at the Lexington Senior Citizens Center on Alumni Drive at Nicholasville Road. It will be open until 7 p.m.

The Catholic Action Center on East Fifth Street, and the Salvation Army on West Main Street are also offering relief for people who need help staying cool.

Public pools in Lexington have also lowered admission prices.

On Thursday, children 15 years of age and under will get in for $1, while people 16 years of age and older will get in for $2.

Officials in Scott County have also opened cooling centers at the concessions center at Brooking Park, and the Ed Davis Center.

Cooling centers at the Ed Davis Center and The Pavilion will be open tomorrow.
