Looking for ways to beat the heat?
The Rock Island Township is offering a free cooling center.
The public building has opened a space for people to come on down and cool off.
But today, no one was taking advantage of it.
"Either it hasn't gotten hot enough for people, which is surprising or people haven't heard about it in some cases or it's a case where they've got other opportunities for staying cool somewhere else," says Alan Carmen, Rock Island Township Supervisor.
Colona has also opened a cooling center at their senior center on 6th street.
