Hot, hot, hot

Jun 1, 2011 6:15:00 PM - thestate.com
Oh baby...it’s hot!

And it’s likely to get hotter before temperatures in the Midlands cool down again. The 15 day forecast predicts temps in the upper 90’s next week before dropping down to more seasonal – read barely bearable - lower 90s. And that’s just the temperature not the “humiture” which combines the air temperature with the humidity. Wednesday the temperature got up to 99 degrees in Columbia but when combined with the humidity, it felt like 102 degrees.

With all this in mind, local public health and law enforcement authorities are urging Midlanders to follow some simple steps to stay safe in what can be unsafe heat:

• During the hottest hours of the day, stay inside. If possible stay inside an air-conditioned building.

• During the hottest summer months the CDC recommends visiting elderly family or friends twice a day.
