Hampton Warns Residents of Dangerous Heat

The City of Hampton is taking steps to keep its residents and visitors safe in the current dangerous heat conditions. The National Weather Service issued a heat advisory for Thursday, July 14, until 8 p.m.

If you need a place to cool off, the city’s libraries and community centers are open and water will be provided. The H.E.L.P. Day Center has also opened a cooling center at First United Methodist Church at 110 East Queen Street. It will be open until 6 p.m.

Water is available Thursday at the lifeguard stations on Hampton beaches. And members of the City’s CERT Corps – residents with Community Emergency Response Training – have been asked to check on friends, family and neighbors.

The Office of Emergency Management says it will continue to monitor the heat and will provide updates as needed.
