Heat wave striking US with dangerous 100+ temperatures

In preparation for this weekend, Philadelphia, Chicago and New York City are operating cooling centers as they expect “extremely dangerous heat.”

Officials are encouraging people to stay in an air-conditioned place, remain hydrated, check on neighbors who might be especially vulnerable to heat and be careful about strenuous outdoor activities.

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said, “We’re very, very concerned about people with physical challenges. We’re concerned about the elderly, we’re concerned about children.”

“It’s very important to hydrate your children two hours before they go to an event,” Newington Parks and Recreation Supt. Bill Demaio said.
