It felt like warmer weather would never come and then all of a sudden it's here and in full force.

The Erie County Department of Health published a list of cooling centers, including many libraries.

With high temps in the 80s this week, the health department recommends people wear light weight or loose clothing, limiting sun exposure and to use sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 and apply it 15 minutes before heading outside.

Heat stroke happens when a person’s body temp rises faster than it can cool down, so the health department recommends exercising inside or and drinking lots of water.

People enjoying a comparatively cooler morning in Delaware Park said they’re doing their best to deal with the heat.

"It’s real warm but enjoyable, better than the wintertime," said Buffalo resident Jalyssa Webb.

"It’s Buffalo, this is precious, every day we get and you know just enjoy it and think about it as the cycle of life in Buffalo,” added Aaron Baratley. 

The cooling centers are free to use and are open to everyone, but people are encouraged to call before going over to ensure a specific center is open.
