Stay Alert During Drought Conditions

KSCB News - July 17, 2012 4:42 pm

Health officials are urging residents to
stay alert to the extreme heat and drought conditions as Kansas
bakes under the summer sun.
Temperatures are forecast to hit 100 degrees or higher for the
next several days with little or no precipitation likely. The
Kansas Department of Health and Environment says recent modest
winds are expected to dissipate by week’s end, increasing concerns
about air quality in the state.
Residents are encouraged to remain vigilant in the coming days,
keeping up what has become a summer routine of staying hydrated and
limiting exposure to the heat.
Tom Langer, KDHE’s director of the bureau of environmental
health, says the danger in extended periods of high heat is that
residents let their guard down and become vulnerable to heat
injuries.
