Health Officials Warn of Heat
With Mother Lode temperatures expected over 100 degrees over the next few days, Tuolumne County Health Officials are concerned that the elderly and the very young could be at risk of heat exhaustion.
Public Health Nurse Kathy Amos says most of the problems are related to heat exhaustion. What are the warning signs? “Heavy sweating, paleness, muscle cramps, diziness, nausea and vomiting,” according to Amos.
Amos has some advice as well. “Drink cool non-alcoholic liquids, rest…the primary thing is to get out of the sun, get out of the heat, seek an air conditioned environment and wear light clothing,” she said.
