Temperatures are expected to flirt with the 90 degree mark for most of the week. That means people will definitely be finding ways to beat the heat and stay cool.
Most people around Harrison County agree on one thing: It's hot!
Temperatures are expected to be around the 90 degree mark for most of the week. While most of you will be hitting the pools to stay cool, some of you had your own ways of staying safe while enjoying the sun.
Back in 2011, heat exhaustion and heat stroke accounted for more than 200 deaths nationwide.
Since the dreaded dog days of summer are quickly approaching, here are few tips to make sure you stay safe during a hot summer day:
- Try to wear light colored/loose clothing. Dark clothes absorb most of the heat, which can cause you to overheat.
- Try to get inside a building that has air conditioning
- Limit the time you spend outside.
- If you start feeling dizzy or lightheaded, contact your doctor.
If going to the pools isn't something you prefer to do, officials say the best way to beat the heat is to keep yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids.
