...BRONX NY-KINGS (BROOKLYN) NY-NEW YORK (MANHATTAN) NY-QUEENS NY- RICHMOND (STATEN IS.) NY-

...THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HAS ISSUED A HEAT ADVISORY FOR TODAY...

TEMPERATURES RISING INTO THE LOWER TO MID 90S COMBINED WITH HIGH HUMIDITY WILL PRODUCE HEAT INDICES OF AROUND 100 DEGREES THIS AFTERNOON.

THIS WILL BE THE 6TH DAY IN A ROW OF 90+ DEGREE TEMPERATURES. RESIDENTS NEED TO TAKE PRECAUTIONS TO PREVENT FROM BECOMING A VICTIM OF THIS HEAT WAVE.

HEAT WAVES...SUCH AS THE ONE WE'RE CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING...DO KILL. AMONG THE FIRST TO SUFFER FROM THE HEAT ARE CHILDREN...THE ELDERLY AND THOSE WITH CHRONIC AILMENTS.

IN GENERAL THOUGH PEOPLE ARE ADVISED TO FOLLOW THESE SAFETY RULES...

1. NEVER LEAVE YOUR CHILDREN OR PETS IN THE CAR ALONE...EVEN IF IT JUST FOR A FEW MINUTES. TEMPERATURES INSIDE CLOSED UP CARS CAN RISE RAPIDLY LEADING TO HEAT STROKE AND DEATH.

2. STAY IN THE SHAPE.

3. SLOW DOWN AND AVOID STRENUOUS ACTIVITIES...ESPECIALLY DURING THE AFTERNOON.

4. DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS...PARTICULARLY WATER...EVEN IF YOU DO NOT FEEL THIRSTY.

5. STAY IN AN AIR CONDITIONED LOCATION LOCATION WHEN POSSIBLE.
