People across the Channel 11 viewing area did what they could to beat the heat Monday.
“It’s too hot out here today. Got to do something to keep cool,” said Bob Walker.
The Mount Washington, West End and Allentown libraries closed because they do not have air conditioning.
For people in West Park, Gus and Yaya’s was an option for people looking to cool down. The business’s ice balls are a popular treat.
“We have a good following. People have been coming here for generations,” said owner Gus Kalaris, who took over for his father in 1951.
At the South Side cooling island, Margaret Lockhart said, “We're here to get cooled off, and it’s wonderful they provide snacks for us.”
Channel 11’s Alan Jennings reported that Animal Control did its part to ensure that pets stayed cool as well.
But some people embraced the heat, taking advantage of Monday’s sunshine to sunbathe on the University of Pittsburgh campus.
