Dane County Executive Joe Parisi tweeted Friday that the Kohl Center will open as a public cooling center downtown.
According to the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the Kohl Center will open around 11 a.m. and anticipate closing around 6 p.m.
With two large fires downtown, more than 11,000 people are without power on what’s expected to be a very hot day in Madison. Many businesses have also closed due to a lack of power.
