Temperatures are anticipated by the National Weather Service to soar into the mid 90s today to offer a prelude to Summer.
As Summer heat approaches, Tim Herrington, the Director of Floyd County’s Emergency Management Agency, urges locals to be prepared.
Herrington warns pet owners to keep an eye on their outdoor pets; make sure that pets have plenty of water and a cool place to rest. And never, ever leave pets or kids in hot cars.
Amid increasing temperatures, remember to stay hydrated. Herrington also recommends that all outdoor projects be completed during the cooler part of the day, either early in the morning or late in the evening.
For additional tips related to Summer safety, Herrington encourages locals to download the Floyd EMA’s mobile app. It is available free of charge through Apple’s App Store and Google Play.
