Cooling centers will be housed at Valparaiso University at 1509 Chapel Drive and 1410 Chapel Drive from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. There will also be centers at the Valparaiso YMCA, 1202 Cumberland Crossing, Valpo Branch of the Public Library, 103 Jefferson St., Vale Park Enrichment Center at Banta, 605 Beech St, St. Teresa of Avila Catholic Church, 1511 LaPorte Ave. and Ivy Tech Community College Northwest Valpo Campus, 3100 Ivy Tech Drive.
There is also the possibility that as more and more air conditions are used, power shortages may occur in large parts of the city. If you do not have a functioning air conditioner for any reason, please feel free to use one of the cooling centers listed above.
