CHICO, Calif. - Many in Chico have taken to the designated cooling centers in the North State to escape the heat from the Excessive Heat Warning.

If you can't find a place to stay cool make sure to visit one of the designated cooling centers in your area which can be found on actionnewsnow.com. One of these locations include the chico mall, so we went out there today and asked people what they thought about this heat.

"Do you enjoy the heat? No, not at all. We're trying to stay out of it right now." - Odin Powers

"Do you enjoy this heat? No. No. But inside it is very nice. Inside the mall, right? Yes. Yeah. Love the sunshine, but the heat can stay away." - Lori McCoslin & Jewell Miner

These designated cooling centers are free for the public to use. Other ways to beat the heat include staying hydrated, dressing in light clothing and finding the shade.

It took a few hours, but the sun broke through the clouds over most of northern California Tuesday afternoon. The low clouds, fog and light rain showers return to the valley Wednesday, with snowy weather in the mountains.
