Cooling center opens to help deal with heat wave

Long Islanders are getting ready to deal with the heat today as many people return to work after the holiday weekend.

A heat advisory remains in effect.

High temperatures expected to be in the mid to upper 90s.

Suffolk County officials say they have opened up a cooling center at the Brentwood Senior Center to give people relief from the heat who do not have air conditioning.

The center is located at 16 Second Avenue and will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
