Red Cross Warns of Heat-Related Illness
With temperatures hovering around 90 degrees across Illinois, experts there say it's time to take precautions. American Red Cross experts say signs of heat-related illnesses include nausea, dizziness, sweating and headaches.
Those suffering from heat exhaustion or heat stroke should be moved to a cool place, given cool water to drink and have ice packs or cool wet cloths placed on their skin. Red Cross experts also advise using sunscreen and avoiding strenuous activity.
