If you are asking yourself what the heck is going on with this horrible streak of triple digit days we are suffering through, stop asking questions and just get yourself to a cooling center and out of the heat.

The City of El Paso is working on making sure that residents who need help getting through the unending heat of the summer of 2020 get that help with six cooling centers that will be open through September 5. The El Paso Office of Emergency Management, Parks and Recreation Department and the Extreme
Weather Task Force have all teamed up all summer long to keep El Pasoans safe from the heat. The Extreme Weather Task Force is also giving out free fans. To see if you qualify, call 3-1-1.

The weather forecast for Thursday through Monday of next week shows triple digit highs and for some reason, we don't seem to be cooling down to the seasonal temperatures of low to mid-90s that we usually have this time of year.

If you need to go to a cooling center, here is a list of the ones that will be open until early September. If the City decides to keep the open past September 5, we will let you know.
