DETROIT (WWJ) — Scorching temperatures will continue through the rest of Saturday night, says the National Weather Service.
A Heat Advisory will be in effect for Wayne, Lenawee, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland and Washtenaw Counties until 10 p.m. Saturday as temperatures reach the mid to upper-90s.
The weather services reminds residents to avoid prolonged sun exposure due to risk of heat-related illnesses, to drink plenty of fluids, keep pets and children in air-conditioned rooms whenever possible, wear loose-fitting clothes, take frequent breaks if you work outside, and to reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening when it’s not as hot.
Michiganders are also urged to check on elderly loved ones and neighbors who may not have air conditioning and to keep pets and kids out of the heat. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location.
Authorities in Roseville say that at least five people have died heat-related deaths during the heat wave so far.
