The Carbondale Warming Center will transition into a cooling center for those in the community needing relief from the intense heat this weekend.

The lobby will be open for people to rest inside an air conditioned building. Water and Gatorade will be offered for free.

There will be no public restrooms. Those wanting access to the full amenities, including the restroom and shower, are available to those who want to register as guests.

They are accepting donations, especially bags of ice, water and snacks, such as popsicles.

The Carbondale Warming Center is staffed 24/7 but the doors are locked for security purposes at 10:30 p.m. They re-open at 6 a.m.

As a news producer and news anchor on All Things Considered, Brad provides the listeners with a recap of the day's top local and state news as well as breaking news at any given time. Contact WSIU Radio at 618-453-6101 or email wsiunews@wsiu.org
