SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WCIA) — As extreme heat moves into Central Illinois this week, a cooling center in Springfield is adding additional hours to its schedule to accommodate the high temperatures.

The Salvation Army’s Overnight/Overflow Shelter, located at 221 North 11th Street, is not usually open as a cooling center during the day, operating as such between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. every night. But with triple-digit heat indexes expected this week, the shelter will be opening during the day this week to add another option for people seeking relief from the heat.

This week, the shelter will be open during the day between 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. in addition to its usual nighttime operation. The shelter is also extending its hours this weekend and will be open continuously from 7 p.m. on Saturday through 7 a.m. on Monday.
