June 30th, 2011 by Jim Field

Cass County Emergency Management Coordinator Mike Kennon has announced that cooling centers have been set up in a few areas of the county to help those who may need to escape the oppressive heat today and Friday.  In Atlantic, the YMCA will be available both days to those non-members who go to the front desk and let the staff know you are there to beat the heat.  In Anita, the Health and Wellness Center will be available until 8:00 pm Thursday and until 6:0 pm Friday.  Also, the Griswold Library will be available Thursday evening until 6:30 pm and Friday until 5:00 pm.  Temperatures are expected to be in the upper 0’s both days with heat index readings well over 100 degrees.
