New River Valley News

PULASKI COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) – As the dog days of summer continue, many residents in parts of the region are having difficulty keeping cool.

This is why a cooling center was opened at the Snowville Volunteer Fire Department on Wednesday.

Anyone can come by and get some water, cool off and even charge their cell phones.

This, as several residents in Pulaski County are still without power after Monday’s storms.

Appalachian Power is saying that they expect everyone who is still out to have power restored by Wednesday night.

The Emergency Management Coordinator in Pulaski County says they will continue to have the cooling shelter opened as long as residents need it.
