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.
