The heat continues in Mid Michigan today with the heat index expected to reach 102 degrees. Health and safety become a factor when temperatures soar this high. Don't mess around. If you need to cool off, visit one of the Lansing Area Cooling Centers.

Check on your neighbors that may be immobile, elderly or in poor health. If you cannot provide a cool place for them to cool off, drive them to one of the numerous cooling centers throughout Mid Michigan.

Perhaps you just need to take a dip to cool off. Lansing has plenty of options when it comes to jumping in head first to cool off. Jumping into a lake or pool when it's this hot, can relieve your "hotness" quickly and it's fun to do.

Another way to cool off in the event you don't have AC at your house is to walk around the mall. The mall is cool and you can cool off there. Visit any of the libraries in the area, grab a book and read for awhile. Libraries are cool and you've been meaning to read that book for decades.
