CHARLOTTE, N.C. - This weekend, when temperatures are dangerously high, some of Charlotte's most vulnerable residents will have no where to get out of the heat.
Mecklenburg County has not opened a cooling center since July 2012 when the region had multiple days in a row of 104 degree temperatures.
We're at the 10th day in a row that temperatures have been in the 90s, which is above average for Charlotte at any time of the year including late July.
Watch the video above as Meteorologist Jaclyn Shearer digs into the decision not to open cooling shelters in Mecklenburg County.
