EXTREME HEAT SAFETY

City of Merced opening ‘cooling center’

MERCED - The City of Merced is opening a cooling center where seniors, the elderly and the infirmed can find refuge from the searing heat wave sweeping the state.

The center will be open from noon to 9 p.m. Wednesday through Friday.

WEDNESDAY: Merced Senior Center, 755 W. 15th St.

THURSDAY: Merced Senior Center, 755 W. 15th St.

FRIDAY: Sam Pipes Room, the Merced Civic Center, 678 W. 18th St.
