It's Getting Hot, Hot, Hot!
For those that spend time in the bright sun, or even those that run or workout at Cosmo Park, it's important to find ways to cool off. Experts recommend people stay indoors or find some shade. Powered fans and swimming pools, such as Hickman High School's pool, are also good choices to escape the heat.
Often times people overlook how serious extreme heat can be.
"If the air is still and if it's very heavy and it's laden with moisture and very hot, then you're not going to get a lot evaporative cooling going on. If the humidity is real high, evaporation is not going to occur and sweating is not going to be very useful," noted Physician John Mruzik.
If you work outside, physicians advise drinking a lot of water very often. They say many people simply don't realize how quickly the body dehydrates. If you don't have an air-conditioned environment, you can find a link for more information on how to cool off.
