EMSA is reporting at least five heat-related illness calls Tuesday, four more than Monday.

That brings the total up to 128 heat-related calls since April 1.

Higher humidity means it’s harder for sweat to evaporate and cool your body.

If you have to be outside, try to do it in the morning or evening when temperatures are somewhat cooler.

Experts said to be sure to drink plenty of water.

This heat alert will remain in effect until temperatures significantly drop.
