LOVELAND, Ohio - We're all looking for ways to beat the heat, especially those who are still waiting to get their electricity restored after Friday's severe storms.
Local businesses are helping out. Places like Ideal Fitness in Loveland are opening their doors. The gym is offering a free place to cool off, free water and even a hot shower for those who want it.
"We did have some people in here yesterday, just excited about the air conditioning. And then when we let them know about the hot showers, everybody does have water pretty much, but not everybody has the heat to the water," said Ideal Fitness Assistant Manager, Tim Richardson.
Other cooling centers have been opened by Cincinnati Recreation Commission at recreation centers around the area. For a full list, go to http://www.wcpo.com/dpp/news/local_news/crc-helping-keep-you-cool-with-free-cooling-centers .
