Heat Wave Affecting Eastern US Until At Least The End Of June

A major heat wave is settling in across much of the east coast this week, and it is expected to possibly last until the end of June. Everyone is advised to use caution and remain hydrated when outdoors or taking part in activities or anything else, such as working in areas without air conditioning. Stay cool by remaining in air-conditioned buildings if possible, wear light clothing, and drink plenty of water. Avoid alcohol and outdoor activities during peak heat and check on vulnerable individuals and pets frequently.
