We’re in a heat wave! Yesterday the thermometer shot up to 108 in Burbank. At 11 p.m. last night, it was still a very warm 81. More extreme temps are expected in B-town through the weekend. The blistering heat prompted Burbank officials to open a cooling center late Friday. Here’s the media release.
BURBANK, Calif. (August 26, 2011) – With high temperatures expected over the next several days, the City of Burbank is establishing a designated cooling center on Saturday and Sunday.
