United Way opens cooling centers in Missouri, Illinois throughout heat advisory


ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- The United Way is opening cooling centers as temperatures climb this week. 

A Heat Advisory will be in effect from 1 p.m. Monday through 9 p.m. Thursday. During those days, the St. Louis area will experience intense heat with a heat index in the triple digits. 

The United Way opens cooling centers that are air-conditioned and have cool water when a heat advisory is issued that calls for a heat index of at least 105. Many of the centers are open during the hottest part of the day, but the hours vary by location. The United Way lists the cooling site at the Salvation Army Family Haven, located at 10740 West Page Boulevard in St. Louis, as being open 24 hours.
