HERE’S good advice for dealing safely with the high temperatures in the area this week.

Here’s a blinding flash of the obvious: it’s hot. Temperatures in Garden Grove and Westminster are expected to hit up to 101 degrees, and in Huntington Beach it will only be slightly cooler at 100.

To offer some relief from the heat, the H. Louis Lake Senior Center, located at 11300 Stanford Ave., will serve as a public cooling, Monday (Sept. 26) 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

All ages are welcome to enjoy the cooling center’s air-conditioned accommodations. Food will not be available, but visitors may bring their own meals and dine inside. For more information, please call the H. Louis Lake Senior Center at (714) 741-5253 during normal business hours, 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
