List: Where to Find Cooling Centers in This Awful Heat

List: Where to Find Cooling Centers in This Awful Heat

Another heat wave looms over Southern California throughout the Labor Day holiday weekend.

Triple digits and “dangerous heat” are expected through Labor Day, prompting officials to issue a statewide Flex Alert.

The California Independent System Operator, which manages the power grid, announced that a Flex Alert — a call for voluntary conservation — will be in effect from 3 to 9 p.m. Saturday through Monday. Urging voluntary conservation is an effort to stave off to much strain on the state’s electrical system, possibly leading to rolling power outages, like those that occurred during high heat last month.

Here’s a list of cooling centers if you don’t have air conditioning.
