Temperatures in mid 90s, heat index over 100 tomorrow, drink plenty of water and limit outdoor activities

The North Brunswick Office of Emergency Management advises residents to stay cool tomorrow as high temperatures are expected to reach the mid 90s with heat indices above 100.

Fortunately, the hot conditions will end Friday as temperatures fall into the 80s.

Here are some preparedness actions from the National Weather Service to beat the heat:

Take extra precaution when working or spending time outdoors. If possible, stay indoors as much as possible and limit exposure to the sun.

Anyone overcome by the heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency, call 9-1-1.

Drink plenty of water, even if you are not feeling thirsty. Dress in loose-fitting, lightweight and light colored clothes.

Children and pets should never be left unattended in a parked vehicle under any circumstance but most especially during hot weather. The interior of a vehicle can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

The North Brunswick Library (880 Hermann Road) and the North Brunswick Senior Center (15 Linwood Place) have been designated as cooling centers. The hours for the Library tomorrow are from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The Senior Center will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
