Cooling system not working properly at 2 Metro stations

The cooling system for the Dupont Circle and Farragut North Metro stations is not working properly.

The transit agency's underground stations are cooled by chilled water air handling units, or chillers, which can make the temperature inside a station up to 20 degrees cooler than it is outside.

Transit officials say there is a leak of some sort, which they are trying to find. Once it is found, repairs will begin.

On this very hot day, FOX 5's Matt Ackland used a surface thermometer to record a temperature of nearly 89 degrees inside the Dupont Circle station.

Meanwhile, Metro says tunnel and station fans are operating to make things more bearable for passengers.
