Weather warning

Like many other members I have a large number of maturing beer bottles in my garage. Approx 400. At the moment they are covered with wet tea towels to try to keep them reasonably cool. I have also set up a couple of house fans to help with the process of latent heat of evaporation. Next week I am going on holiday and fear that this hot weather will continue in my absence. What suggestions do home brewers have for helping me to keep the garage cool and ensure that when I return I won't have a garage filled with fragments of broken glass and beer draining over the walls and floor!?
