Today, Thursday, is expected to reach the low to mid 90s and the National Weather Service in Binghamton is reminding residents to watch for signs of heat exhaustion and/or heat stroke.


The best thing you can do to avoid heat exhaustion and heat stroke is to stay hydrated and stay cool.

Signs to watch out though for heat exhaustion include: dizziness, thirst, heavy sweating, nausea, and general weakness. Things to do if you or someone is experiencing heat exhaustion is to move to a cooler area, loosen clothing, sip cool water, and to seek medical assistance if symptoms do not improve.

For the signs of a heat stroke, they include: confusion, dizziness, and unconsciousness. In the event someone is experiencing a heat stroke, call 9-1-1 immediately and move them to a cool place, loosen clothing and remove extra layers, and cool with water or ice.

Someone having a heat stroke can lead to death or a permanent disability if emergency treatment is not given right away.
