Decatur – The Decatur-Macon County Senior center has opened their doors to help people beat the heat.
Temperatures are well into the 90's, and the center wants to make sure you have a place to cool off. Seniors are invited to come to the Senior Center on East 22nd Street, where the AC is on high.
Seniors are at risk in the extreme heat, which is way the senior center is stressing the importance of staying cool and hydrated. The senior center says you don't have to be a senior to get some relief, so if you are near by anyone can come in.
The senior center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. A cooling center is also open, on 707 East Wood Street, in Decatur. Champaign Public Health on 201 West Kenyon Road and in Springfield on 100 South Martin Luther King Drive also have opened their doors to help beat the heat.
Evangelist Franklin Graham prayed on a sidewalk outside the Pentagon Thursday after his invitation to a prayer service inside was withdrawn because of comments that insulted people of other religions. More>>
