CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Much of the eastern seaboard is in for another day of grueling temperatures with some reaching as high as 102 degrees. [View area cooling centers and swimming pools and spray basins]

Back here in Northeast Ohio, we're preparing for another sweltering day, too. Officials plan to keep their eye on the mercury and the power supply.

Monday, about seventeen-thousand New Jersey residents lost power for more than four hours. Tuesday, the mercury is expected to climb into the triple digits in some places and it won't get much better when the sun goes down.

Here in Ohio, the hot, humid, holiday weekend was spent hitting the pools, and the lake!

Kathy Heinz of Maple Heights tells 19 Action News "If I had my choice, I'd be home in the a/c …but she (daughter) wanted to come to the beach, so we came to the beach."

Ohioans are going to need to keep their families and pets nice and cool for the next few days until the heat subsides. Click here to see a list of public pools and spray basins in the Cleveland area.
