Experts warn about dangers of warm weather as temps in the Bronx heat up
It suddenly feels like summer in the Bronx as forecasters predict the mercury to soar past 90 degrees Tuesday and Wednesday. And with the rising temps come warnings of the dangers the heat can pose.
Experts from the Centers for Disease Control are warning residents to be careful while trying to enjoy the sun. If possible, people should stay in the shade, drink a lot of water and wear lightweight clothing.
Some of the risks of staying in the heat too long include getting heat exhaustion and even more serious heat stroke, which could cause death. Symptoms of heat exhaustion include nausea, dizziness, headache, fainting, weakness and sweatiness.
