Staying Safe As Hot, Humid Weather Returns

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG – Forecasters say get ready for hot and humid weather in our region. With temperatures in the 90’s and dewpoints in the 70’s, heat index values are expected to reach over 100 degrees. PA Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine says it’s important during these times to stay well hydrated. Avoid consuming caffeinated, alcoholic or sugary beverages and outdoor workers should drink between two and four cups of water per hour. Also, wear lightweight, loose-fitting, light-colored clothing, a hat or visor, and SPF 15 or higher sunscreen if you have to be outside. During times of extreme heat, cooling centers are opened in cities across Pennsylvania for those without air conditioning. To find a cooling center near you, contact your local municipality or county office.
