Impacts

Hot daytime temps and warm nighttime lows pose a risk for heat related illness in vulnerable populations such as the elderly and unsheltered homeless.

Tips

Monitor the latest forecasts and warnings for updates on this situation. Be prepared to drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air- conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.
