Daily Photo Galleries

Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2013, 2:30 p.m.
 

Pittsburgh's Greenfield, Homewood, Sheraden, and South Side Healthy Active Living Centers will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday for seniors needing relief from the heat.

The National Weather Service projects the high temperature at 86, but the city opens “cooling stations” when there is a possibility of the heat index — a measure of how it feels — reaching 90 degrees.

Refreshments and activities will be provided. For more information, call Citiparks at 412-422-6405.
