FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Several Maryland cities are opening cooling centers to help residents cope with the extreme summer heat.
Annapolis is running cooling centers Thursday through Sunday. Baltimore says it’s expanding the number of available cooling stations into this weekend. The city of Frederick says it will run public cooling centers Thursday through Saturday.
Also in Frederick, Potomac Edison has agreed to postpone a maintenance-related power outage that would have affected four downtown blocks late Sunday night and early Monday morning.
City officials requested the delay to ensure that power for cooling will be available to the 115 utility customers in that area.
