Excessive Heat Warning
Excessive heat into the nineties is expected for much of the foreseeable near future. With the heat is also high humidity which makes temperatures feel even higher.

Help stay cool by:
* Staying hydrated: It is crucial to drink plenty of water, as hydration helps regulate body temperature during periods of intense heat.
* Limiting strenuous activity- avoid engaging in strenuous physical outdoor activity when the heat is at its peak.
* Seeking shelter in air-conditioned spaces: Whenever possible, stay indoors in air-conditioned areas to escape the heat. If air-conditioning is not available, close windows and use fans to create cross-ventilation.
* Closing curtains, shades or blinds can also help keep rooms cooler.
* Taking cool showers and baths to lower body temperature and find relief from the heat.
* Seeking refuge in air-conditioned public spaces such as libraries and community centers.
