Temperatures are expected to reach 90 degrees but the heat index will make it feel even warmer.
To provide a safe and cool way to protect residents from the heat, the Detroit Recreation Department has two locations as cooling centers available that provide air conditioned comfort and protection from the heat.
Joseph Walker Williams Center
8431 Rosa Parks Blvd
Coleman A. Young Recreation Center
2751 Robert Bradby Dr.
The cooling centers are open Monday through Friday 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m.- 6 p.m.
The National Weather Service says about 170 people in the U.S. die each year from extreme heat. Heat deaths and injuries are usually underreported.
Most heat related deaths occur in people’s homes and in people over the age of 40.
In order to protect yourself from the heat the NWS recommends:
Hydrate: Drink plenty of water and avoid drinks with alcohol, caffeine or lots of sugar.
Educate: Find a cool place where you will be able to get out of the heat and know the warning signs of heat illness.
Act Quickly: Get medical help right away if you experience heavy sweating, rapid breathing, rapid heartbeat, cramping, nausea, dizziness, confusion and exhaustion.
Take It Easy: Avoid over exertion especially between the hours of 11 am and 6 pm. Take breaks at least hourly in the shade or in an air conditioned location. You should also stay out of the sun and in a cooled building as much as possible.

Third Annual Garden Tour
Detroit Mayor Dave Bing will serve as the Honorary Chair for the Historic Boston-Edison Association’s Third Annual Garden Tour.
Six spectacular gardens will be featured when the Historic Boston-Edison Association host its Second Annual Garden Tour, Saturday, June 18, 2011. The highlight of this year’s event will be the opportunity to view rare flowers and distinctive landscapes. Detroit history buffs will have the unique opportunity to stroll the streets of one of Detroit’s most renowned historic districts.
The Garden Tour will feature an enchanting Cottage garden filled with delightful roses, a garden with lush greenery and harmonious spaces and a recently rejuvenated garden with a display of floral opulence.
Before and after touring the gardens, guests are invited to visit Voigt Park for continental breakfast and lunch. During the tour experience, individuals interested in possibly calling Boston-Edison home may speak with realtors who will host an Open House event on that day.
The day is designed to allow attendees to experience Boston-Edison at their own pace with the option of riding a shuttle to designated stops.
Tickets for the event are $15.00 per person in advance and may be purchased the day of the event at $20.00 beginning at 9:00 a.m. in Voigt Park (located between Longfellow and Edison; Second and Third Streets).
