Staying healthy in the excessive heat

(Jon Zimney/95.3 MNC)

Just a reminder: As the heat gets turned up in Michiana, there are some important things to keep in mind to stay healthy and happy.

If you spend too much time outdoors, there’s a risk of heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Know the signs of both and be sure to spend time cooling off when the high temps become too much.

If you’re walking your dog, remember that they aren’t wearing shoes, and hot pavement can burn the pads of their feet. Don’t leave children or animals unattended in the car, and the same is true of your electronic devices. Time spent in the hot car can damage your phone, laptop, iPad, and more.

Temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday run the risk of a heat index as high as 115°.
