With temperatures still expected in the 90s today, it’s important to be safe while in the heat.
An excessive heat warning continues today so remember to stay hydrated and stay in an air-conditioned shelter during the hottest parts of the day. Check on homebound and elderly family members or neighbors several times a day to make sure they are staying hydrated and not showing signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke.
Statewide, nearly 1.5 percent of all emergency department visits the past few days were heat-related. One person was admitted into the Emergency Room at IU Health Starke Hospital for heat exhaustion.
