Shreveport Opens Cooling Centers to Beat the Heat
Hot temperatures will stay with us in the Shreveport area all week. The Weather Channel predicts the high temp for Monday is expected to hit 99 degrees with a 97 degree temp on Tuesday and Wednesday and then back up to 99 on Thursday. After that, it's going to get really hot with the high temps on Friday through Sunday expected to be above 100 degrees.
Because of this heat, the City of Shreveport will open cooling centers at SPAR facilities starting Monday, June 20.
The public can stop by these locations to get inside with air-conditioned, free bottled water and places to sit down. The centers will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
