Red Cross setting up cooling center

Thursday, June 28, 2012

TERRE HAUTE -- To ensure area citizens without air conditioning have a place to go to get out of the heat and to keep hydrated with water, the American Red Cross Wabash Valley Chapter, 700 S. Third St., Terre Haute, will be open as a cooling center Friday.

The center will be open 10 a.m.-7 p.m.

In addition to the Terre Haute site, the Red Cross is partnering with Putnam County Emergency Management and the Putnam County Hospital to provide a cooling site in the hospital lobby, located at 1542 S. Bloomington St., Greencastle.

Those seeking refuge from the heat may do so at the hospital during daylight hours.
