Daily brief (7/11): Top picks from the Springfield media

Yesterday’s high of 102 set new records; the previous record of 100 was set in 1980. This morning starts off in the 80s, and it’s predicted to only get hotter with a high in the upper 90s.

It should be sunny for the next few days, with highs nearing 100.

Today’s picks

Ozarks First: Cooling centers are now open in Springfield. High temps prompt temporary relief for area residents. Both Springfield YMCAs are classified as cooling centers and are open during normal hours. The Salvation Army is also open when heat advisories are in effect.

Springfield News-Leader: Springfield addresses lack of community safe rooms. Right now, there’s only one room in Greene County that’s built to the toughest FEMA tornado standards, and it’s in the O’Reilly Family Event Center

KY3: Summertime bomb could mean jail time for area teens. Two reports of so-called chemical bombs have shown up in southwest Missouri. However, the homemade explosives are considered unpredictable—not to mention dangerous.
