The mayor's office recently sent out a media advisory suggesting that Memphis Community Centers are open as cooling centers from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m.
"Residents are urged to seek shelter during the middle of the day in a cool environment." If you can't make it to a community/cooling center, another option is the neighborhood library.
