Hyperthermia Alert in Effect Today

Montgomery County has activated the Extreme Heat Plan for a Hyperthermia Alert for Wednesday, August 25, from 11am – 7pm. Expect the heat index to be above 95 degrees.

County officials urge residents to take precautions to protect themselves, and their loved ones, against heat-related illnesses such as heat stroke and heat exhaustion.

A  Heat Emergency Alert could be issued for the County when dangerously hot conditions are present, including, but not limited to, temperatures and/or heat index reaching 105 degrees for a period of at least two days or longer for which it will be dangerous to anyone exposed to the heat for an extended period of time.

Residents are also asked to check on elderly friends, relatives and neighbors who may be isolated, to ensure they are not showing signs of heat-related illnesses.
