Summer heat will be in full swing as we celebrate Independence Day this week. As the heat wave shows no sign of ending, doctors are warning about the dangers of heat stroke.
Symptoms leading to heat exhaustion include dizziness, nausea and fainting. Physicians say you can take steps to stay cool, including using misting fans if you’re going to be outside. Getting your skin a little bit wet and being in some sort of airflow can help your body release heat.
Doctors also suggest; drink plenty of water, wear light-weight, loose fitting clothing and stay inside as much as you can during the hottest part of the day.
More 90-degree heat is on the way.
