With rising temperatures, Salvation Army opens cooling station in Norfolk

NORFOLK — With temperatures expected to reach the high 90s this week, the Salvation Army is opening its doors as a cooling station for Hampton Roads residents.

The temperature is expected to reach a high of 97 on Wednesday, dropping by only one degree on Thursday, according to AcuWeather.

Due to the “extreme and dangerous heat,” the Salvation Army’s Hope Center, located at 19th St. Norfolk, will become an emergency cooling station from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both days, according to a Salvation Army news release.

The cooling station will provide relief for the homeless and those without air conditioning in their homes, the release states.
