STUDIO CITY (CBS) — As the summer heat wave reaches the southland, Los Angeles and Riverside Counties are providing relief for the elderly and those who face heat related health issues.

Cooling centers across southern California are opening their doors to prevent heat related issues such as dehydration and heat cramps, Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich said in a news release.

Temperatures are expected to hover in the 90s and 100s in most Southland cities for the next five days. In order to avoid heat-related illnesses, the Department of Public Health recommends avoiding unnecessary sun exposure, wearing loose clothing, and drinking plenty of water.
