Although temperatures have cooled down, it doesn't look like there will be any relief anytime soon.
Construction workers have the hottest job around. The heat is far more intense for them around running machines. Construction supervisor George Shoudel says, its feel more like, "100-110, around one of those equipment, the heat around them is pretty hot."
But it's not just workers who need to be careful. Vermilion County Coroner Peggy Johnson reminds everyone to stay cool by keeping cool. She reasons, "when you're sweating profusely, your salt levels decrease and risk factors increase."
So how do you know the heat is too much?Symptoms are fatigue, nausea, and muscle cramps. If you're feeling those, get inside and cool off. The best way to do that is drink lots of water, take a break and get in the shade. Doctors say drink at least eight glasses a day. When it's hot and humid, they say add another three to four on top of that since we're sweating a lot more.
