A hot week is ahead. Heat Index is expected to be in the mid to upper 90’s most of the week. As we have not had consecutive days this hot in a long time, these conditions are potentially dangerous and it is important that county residents know the warning signs and symptoms of heat illness and the appropriate responses.
