County Under Hyperthermia Alert; Temperatures Expected to Reach 90s

Montgomery County is under a Hyperthermia Alert from noon to 7 p.m. on Tuesday. The County issues a Hyperthermia Alert when the temperature and/or heat index is projected to reach 95 degrees or higher.

County officials advise residents to stay indoors whenever possible, drink plenty of water, and to wear proper protection from the sun.

Pets, young children, and the elderly should not be left inside a vehicle, even if the windows are down. The County warns that in only a matter of minutes, temperature inside a park car can reach 130 degrees.

If you show any signs of heat exposure, it’s important to get out of the heat, loosen tight clothing and hydrate by drinking water.
