In response to the heat wave baking the region, several Los Angeles cooling centers will have extended hours Tuesday and Wednesday.

“Everyone in Los Angeles should have a place to go for relief from these scorching temperatures — and that can be especially critical for the youngest among us and older Angelenos without air-conditioning,” Mayor Eric Garcetti said.

“Our city’s libraries, recreation centers, and senior centers are all a part of L.A.’s network of cooling centers, and they are always available to residents during normal business hours. We’re adding hours at several centers, on the hottest days, so that anyone who needs help can stay cool, healthy, and safe,” he said.
