Excessive Heat Warning Day 2

(St. Francois County, MO.) The Excessive Heat Warning continues today, which means those who have no choice but to work in this oppressive heat need to take some extra precautions.
Tiffany Ross is a nurse with the St. Francois County Health Department and she says there are several things people who work outside can do to try to stay cool and keep their body from overheating.

Ross says water and fluids with electrolytes like sport drinks can help a lot. She says whenever possible try to take a break from the heat even in an air conditioned vehicle for just a few minutes. The heat is expected to stick around through the weekend.
