News Briefs from the July 9, 2024 Board of Supervisors Meeting

STAY COOL AT COUNTY FACILITIES
With record temps hitting the region and an Excessive Heat Warning in effect through this evening, Health & Human Services Director Anna Scott reported on Tuesday that HHS is working to refine a policy for activation of cooling centers from Bishop to Furnace Creek when dangerously high temperatures exist.
The National Weather Service forecast highs on Friday of 105-111 in the Owens Valley and 122-129 at Furnace Creek in Death Valley National Park. Temperatures will drop down to the mid- to high 90s by Monday, and creep back up to triple digits by week’s end.
