City officials going door-to-door to check on residents during heat wave

Posted: Updated:

ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) –St. Louis City officials will be going door-to-door to check on people during the heat wave.

The officials have addresses and phone numbers for about 6,500 people who are considered vulnerable during heat waves and other extreme conditions. Mayor Francis Slay sent those people a voice recording with a warning about the heat and information about cooling centers, but about 300 people did not get the message, which is why the officials will be visiting them Thursday and Friday.
