New York state pools open more hours during heat wave

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York state parks are keeping their pools open longer to help people deal with the heat wave.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the extended hours will begin Friday and continue through Sunday at more than 30 parks statewide.

Temperatures are expected to climb into the 90s around much of the state Friday as much of the nation deals with high heat. High temperatures are expected to linger through the weekend.

A list of available swim locations and places to cool off is available at www.parks.ny.gov .

Municipalities around the state also are opening buildings as public cooling centers.
