Heat Wave to Continue through Thursday Cooling Stations Open to the Public
by Sandi Canaday
According to the National Weather Service, the extreme heat for our area is to continue through the 4th of July Holiday.
The 100 plus temperatures are accompanied with very high humidity. This heat and humidity combination creates high risk for heat related illnesses, particularly in children and the elderly. It is advised to stay in a cool place with as little exertion as possible and to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
If you plan to visit any body of water during this heat wave, please practice safety precautions and never leave children or non-swimmers unattended.
Remember to provide plenty of water and shade for your outdoor pets. Never leave a child, pet or the elderly in a car even if the windows are open. Vehicles heat to unbearable temperatures and can have deadly consequences.
