DURANT – The heat in the area and this entire section of the country is taking its toll in many ways. Local activities are affected as well.
The Durant City Pool at Carl Albert Park will be closing during the afternoon sessions on Thursday, July 19, and Friday, July 20. This is taking place due to excessive heat in the forecast for those days.
The evening sessions and the morning swim times and lessons will not be closed on either day.
Forecasts show the high temperature could reach 107º each day with heat indices climbing higher.
