July 20: It's going to be a scorcher, so beat the heat

HSEMA issued this alert earlier this morning:

The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory which will go into effect at 1:00pm today. Expect heat index values to reach 109 due to temperatures in the mid to upper 90’s and dew points in the low to mid 70’s. Those with heat related illness, without air conditioning or those outdoors for extended periods of time please take all necessary precautions.

This kind of heat and humidity are no joke so stay cool:

  • Stay inside
  • Visit a DPR pool — locations are listed online:
  • Call 311 for information about cooling center locations
  • Get water for the homeless by calling the DC Shelter Hotline — (202) 399-7093
  • More information about heat emergency and hyperthermia:
  • DO NOT open fire hydrants
