MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Wednesday night's storm brought a little bit of relief from the heat, but temperatures will once again rise to close to 100 degrees Thursday.

What's more, with high humidity, the temperature will feel like almost 110 degrees.

With air conditioning blasting, staying indoors may not feel too bad on a hot day, but Wednesday's storm caused a bit of damage, knocking down trees. One tree took some power lines with it, knocking out power to hundreds of people in Memphis.

Power outages were spread across the city, but the highest concentration of outages was in the Frayser and Raleigh areas. As crews work to restore power, residents can seek shelter and cooler air inside the cooling center at the Frayser-Raleigh Senior Citizens Center on Egypt Central Road. The cooling center will be open from 6 p.m. until 7 a.m.

During the day, you can head to a library or mall for some free A/C.
