Westchester residents urged to take caution during heat advisory
The Westchester County Health Department issued a heat advisory Tuesday, described as one of the hottest days of the year.
The temperature is in the 90s and with the humidity it feels like more than 100 degrees. Residents are urged to stay inside if possible. The health department says if people must work or go outside they should try to stay in the shade, take breaks and drink plenty of fluids.
Health officials say the extreme heat is hardest on the very young and the very old. Residents that need help or have any questions can call the county health department hotline at 914-813-5000.
