Buffalo, NY (WBEN) Three cooling centers will be open in Buffalo this weekend, as the mercury stays in the 90s.

The three cooling centers on Saturday, June 30th and Sunday, July 1st,  to aid persons who are suffering from the heat and do not have access to air-conditioned space.

“The combination of near-record high temperatures and extremely high humidity, will result in “real feel” conditions that feel like triple digits. These conditions will be particularly difficult for our elderly and young children,” Mayor Brown said. “It’s important for all our residents to take the necessary precautions to stay cool and hydrated, and please keep an eye on your vulnerable neighbors.”

The cooling centers located at Autumnwood Senior Center, 1800 Clinton St., and the Richmond/Summer Senior Center, will be open both Saturday and Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  The center at the Broadway Market Senior Drop-In Center, will be open Saturday only, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Mayor Brown previously announced the City will open seven of its outdoor swimming pools and two wading pools at 11 a.m. this Saturday, June 30th.  Traditionally, City pool season runs from July 1st through Labor Day. The decision to open the pools a day early was also based on the sweltering weekend weather forecast.

Niagara Falls will also offer cooling centers at the following locations:

  • John Duke Senior Center (Sat. & Sun. 11am - 6pm)
  • LaSalle Senior Center Building B (Sat. & Sun. 11am - 6pm)

The Niagara Falls City School District is prepared to open additional cooling centers should the need arise.

The following city pools will also be open to the public Saturday and Sunday:

Erie County Libraries are also going to be open this weekend:
