MIAMI VALLEY — The entire Miami Valley is under a heat advisory Monday with a heat index of 100 degrees outside.
That will make any prolonged outdoor activity dangerous if you're not taking the right precautions.
Doctors at Kettering Medical Center said that they are seeing a lot more patients coming in this time of year with complaints of severe cramping, nausea and headaches from the heat.
Tree trimmers were in Riverside Monday morning, cutting down limbs around the Valley Worship Center on Valley Pike.
Trimmers started the work at 9 a.m. and planned to be there for five to six hours.
They filled coolers with ice and drinks to keep their core temperatures down and to keep out of the Kettering Medical Center ER.
“[The heat] makes us constantly sweat,” said Josh Patterson, tree trimmer for Tackett Tree & Shrub Service. “Keeping sweat out of your face and eyes, you really want to come down for a drink of water every five minutes.”
