Residents without air conditioning can now get some relief at cooling centers established Monday in Lodi as an excessive heat warning continues for much of Northern California.
Residents may go to Kirst Hall at Hutchins Street Square, 125 S. Hutcfhins St., from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. today through Thursday. A second place to cool off is at the Lodi Public Library, 201 W. Locust St. It will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. today through Wednesday. The library will be closed on the Fourth of July holiday, but Hutchins Street Square will be open on Thursday, Lodi city spokesman Jeff Hood said.
The San Joaquin County Office of Emergency Services is developing a list of cooling stations in other parts of the county. See www.lodinews.com for updates on cooling station locations.
Temperatures are expected to reach about 110 degrees each afternoon through Thursday, according to AccuWeather.com, a private forecasting service.
