Illinois quick hits: Temps to rise above 100; luxury store robbers sought



Cooling centers to open as temps to rise above 100

With a heat dome moving over much of Illinois for the next couple days, several towns throughout the state are opening cooling centers to help people get through triple-digit heat indices.

Cooling centers are opening in Chicago, Quincy, Decatur and Springfield among other communities. Temperatures will approach 110 degrees in some areas with heat index values reaching 115. Officials said this will increase the potential for heat-related illnesses, especially for those working outdoors.

An extreme heat warning has been issued for most of the state until Thursday night.

Luxury store robbers sought

Detectives are searching for a group of individuals who robbed a luxury store near the Magnificent Mile in downtown Chicago.

Chicago police said a crew of six suspects, wearing face coverings and gloves, entered the Prada store Sunday afternoon and began stealing merchandise. The gang then quickly fled the scene. No one in the store was hurt.
