Health Leaders Warn Of Heat Exhaustion During Water Follies

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.-- Rising temperatures can mean rising concerns over heat stroke and dehydration.                 

Today, the thermometer neared triple digits. And with many enjoying the outdoors, health leaders want to make sure you are drinking plenty of water and avoiding sodas and alcohol. 

And with next week's water follies, huge crowds in the heat means local hospitals are taking extra precautions.

Making sure you stay in the shade and drinking cool liquids are the best ways to beat the heat. 

And the best way to tell if it's time to head the the e-r is when speech begins to slur or if you become very disoriented.
