Red Cross spokesman: "Get out of this heat..."
A number of cooling centers have been set up at libraries and nutrition centers throughout the metro, according to Red Cross spokesman Ken Garcia.
"We encourage those who may not have air conditioning, or those who aren't running it because they can't afford it, to go to these cooling stations and get out of this heat," Garcia told KTOK.
Cooling centers can be found at some Oklahoma City metro libraries.
A complete list of the cooling stations can be found on the Red Cross of Central and Western Oklahoma website:
Garcia says cooling stations are also located in a number of communities outside the metro, including Cushing, Stillwater and Pauls Valley.
The National Weather Service says daytime highs of 112 degrees in Tulsa and 108 degrees in Oklahoma City on Tuesday broke heat records set in 1980.
