Heat-Advisory_7.28.23

GENESEO, N.Y., Sept. 5, 2023 – With temperatures forecasted to soar into the 90s this week, the National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for Livingston County effective from 12 p.m. through 7 p.m. on Tuesday, September 5th.

Temperatures are expected to climb into the low 90s on Tuesday afternoon with the heat index projected to be in the mid-90s potentially. 

The National Weather Service is advising that people drink plenty of fluids, stay out of the sun and remain in an air-conditioned environment if possible.  Those who work outside are reminded to take extra precautions to guard against heat stroke, heat exhaustion and other heat-induced illnesses.     

Heat-related illness can occur when the body is unable to cool itself, leading to rising body temperatures. Those at greatest risk for heat-related illness include infants and children up to four years of age, people 65 years of age and older, people who are overweight and people who are ill or on certain medications. Not all heat related illness is heat stroke. Signs of heat stroke include:

  • An extremely high body temperature (above 103°F)
  • Red, hot and dry skin (no sweating)
  • Rapid, strong pulse
  • Throbbing headache
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Confusion
  • Unconsciousness

If you suspect someone is suffering from heat stroke, contact emergency services immediately. For more information on heat safety, contact 585-243-7270 or visit the Livingston County Department of Health’s website.
