Heat related illnesses can and will happen with the extreme heat we're experiencing.

Staying indoors and in air conditioning is highly recommended.

The City of Oroville has opened its Municpal Auditorium for folks looking to get out of the heat.

Even spending a couple hours indoors can help lower your body's core temperature and prevent heat related illnesses.

We spoke with some folks who don't have a home or a place to escape the extreme temperatures.

Young and Jennings say, "I think it's a wonderful place to keep cool for a couple hours a day. I'm going to keep coming here until they close it down. I don't want them to."

The Oroville Fire Department's Facebook page says they expect the cooling center to be open for the next few days.

High clouds are streaming over northern California on this final day of the workweek, and light showers are trying to fall over the mountains. It is warmer today despite the clouds, and it's going to get much warmer soon.
