Extreme heat to last through Friday in San Joaquin County, California

Extreme heat in San Joaquin County has forced the Office of Emergency Services to declare a state of emergency. The heat is forecast to last through Friday, forecasters said.

Prolonged high heat and humidity that can be dangerous and even life-threatening is forecast for San Joaquin County, said the County Public health officials, urging the public  to take precautions that will protect them and their families.

“The Stockton Memorial Civic Auditorium has been set up as one of 11 cooling centers across San Joaquin County to provide residents a safe and cool gathering place during the week-long heat emergency,” said a report.

Stockton is the county seat of San Joaquin County with a population of about 300,000.
