NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The triple-digit heat shouldn’t be taken lightly. Hot temperatures can be dangerous to anyone, regardless of age. Depending on your circumstance, staying at home in the hot weather might not be a safe option.
To give North Texans some cool relief, a number of cooling stations have opened across the meteroplex. Anyone wanting to escape from the heat stop by and cool off in an air conditioned facility.
