Excessive Heat Warning in NJ

It’s a scorcher out today! There’s an official excessive heat warning for our area (central/south New Jersey) from 11:00am to 8:00pm this evening. The heat index–how it feels outside–will be between 99° and 104°. The hot temperatures, combined with high humidity, combine to create a dangerous environment, especially to the older population. Heat-related illnesses can occur quickly.

What to do:

  • Keep hydrated–drink plenty of water
  • Stay inside where it’s cool–an air-conditioned area is best
  • Check on your neighbors
  • Wear loose-fitting, lightweight clothing
  • Be on the lookout for heat exhaustion or heat stroke
