    SEATTLE - High temperatures forecasted throughout the Seattle area for Monday are a concern for homeless people who don’t have a way to get out of the heat.

    Seattle's Union Gospel Mission will set up a water station on the sidewalk outside its Pioneer Square Men's Shelter.

    There will also be 700 bottles of water and 10 cases of sunscreen, bug spray and cleansing towels. Water will also be available for pets.

    The mission’s search and rescue team will also be doing outreach to deliver cold water and food, and offer people a place to come in from the heat. The team will be out on the streets and at encampments until 11 p.m.
