“Seniors and those with chronic health problems or mental health conditions are at increased risk,” the NWS states. “Homes without air conditioning can be much hotter than outdoors.
“Use air conditioning to stay cool at home or go to a place that has air conditioning. Check on vulnerable friends, family members and neighbors.”
