Thankfully today it's not humid outside. As the week progresses the temps will remain steady. We're finally getting the awesome summer like weather in Michigan. This will make the last week for some students in school warm while some schools don't get out for summer vacation until next week or later.

Warmer temps also mean that we need to check on our neighbors that might need a little help. Perhaps an elderly neighbor lives next door, knock on their door to make sure that they are cool and hydrated. It doesn't take much to check on the well being of your neighbor.

If your kids play sports make sure that they have plenty of water to stay hydrated at their sporting event.

The Mayo Clinic provided info regarding heat exhaustion.

What is heat exhaustion and signs of it?

Heat exhaustion is a condition that happens when your body overheats. Symptoms may include heavy sweating and a rapid pulse. Heat exhaustion is one of three heat-related illnesses, with heat cramps being the mildest and heatstroke being the most serious.

Causes of heat illness include exposure to high temperatures, particularly when there is also high humidity, and strenuous physical activity. Without prompt treatment, heat exhaustion can lead to heatstroke, a life-threatening condition. Fortunately, heat exhaustion is preventable.

Symptoms of heat exhaustion.

Symptoms of heat exhaustion may start suddenly or progress over time, especially with prolonged periods of exercise. Possible heat exhaustion symptoms include:

  • Cool, moist skin with goose bumps when in the heat.
  • Heavy sweating.
  • Faintness.
  • Dizziness.
  • Fatigue.
  • Weak, rapid pulse.
  • Low blood pressure upon standing.
  • Muscle cramps.
  • Nausea.
  • Headache

When you should see a doctor.

If you think you have heat exhaustion:

  • Stop all activity and rest.
  • Move to a cooler place.
  • Drink cool water or sports drinks.

Contact your doctor if your symptoms get worse or they don't improve within one hour.

If you're with someone who has heat exhaustion, seek immediate medical help if they become confused or distressed, lose consciousness, or are unable to drink. If their core body temperature — measured by a rectal thermometer — reaches 104 F (40 C) or higher, they need immediate cooling and urgent medical attention.

Staying cool is the best remedy regarding heat. If you are in the Lansing area you can cool off at the following cooling centers.
