Lowell hits 102 Degrees today.

LOWELL, MI - Hot? No kidding. The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Warning for the Lowell area until Saturday at  8am. For some Lowell residents that is just to much. I have spoke with several residents around the area and they said they can't find any relief. Here are some tips to make sure you are staying healthy and hydrated during this severe heat this is infecting a lot of people in the United States. 

According to the doctor, the average person should drink eight 8 oz. glasses of water a day, but in order to beat the heat, he advises drinking a lot more fluids than usual and find a cool, shaded area to stay. The signs of heat illness "Heavy sweating; cool, moist skin; body temperature above 38°C; weak pulse; normal or low blood pressure; tired and weak, nausea and vomiting; very thirsty; panting or breathing rapidly; blurred vision"  If you experience the early symptoms and warning signs of heat stress, respond by taking a break and drinking water (1 cup every 20-30 minutes)  

If you have no power, there is a lot of places around West Michigan to stay 'Cool". 

KENT COUNTY:  Current Cooling Center if no power in your Home.
