On Wednesday afternoon, The Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency (RIEMA) announced that due to predicted high temperatures through the middle of the week, cooling centers should be open to the public where available.
Due to the heat, Coventry officials have opened a Cooling Center at the Coventry Senior Center (50 Wood St.) to give residents some escape from the soaring temperatures. The center will be open until 10 p.m. on Monday and from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday.
