With the prolonged heat wave, public health officials in the Tri-States are opening cooling centers.
They're also warning people to drink plenty of fluids, check on neighbors and take precautions if they're outside.
Be cautious of the early signs of heat stroke, like no sweating, dizziness or headaches. If you experience any of these symptoms, get out of the heat immediately and call 9-1-1.
The Brown County Health Department has opened three cooling centers in Mt. Sterling at the health department, community center and the IGA dining area.
