[ARCHIVED] Westchester County Health Department Issues Heat Advisory

With high humidity and temperatures forecasted Friday through Sunday, the Westchester County Health Department has issued a heat advisory. As humidity and temperatures rise, residents should avoid strenuous activity, drink lots of water, avoid alcohol and caffeine, and take precautions to prevent heat-related illness. Read the full release. New Rochelle updates follow below.

Heatstroke is a serious and life-threatening condition that claims many lives nationwide each year. Symptoms include hot red, dry skin, shallow breathing, rapid, weak pulse, and confusion. Anyone suffering from heat stroke needs to receive emergency medical treatment immediately. Call 911 if you suspect heatstroke and immediately cool the overheated person while waiting for emergency help to arrive.

Another concern during a heatwave is heat exhaustion. Seniors, young children, people who are overweight or who have high blood pressure and those who work in hot environments are most at risk. Signs include headache, nausea or vomiting, dizziness, and exhaustion, as well as cool, moist, pale or flushed skin. Anyone suffering from heat exhaustion should move out of the sun and apply cool, wet cloths to their skin.

For tips to prevent heat-related illness and places to stay cool, visit the Health Department website at www.westchestergov.com/health.  

In New Rochelle, the Hugh A. Doyle Senior Center will be open 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM on Friday. The New Rochelle Public Library Main and Huguenot Branches will be open on Friday from 9Am to 5PM, and the Main Branch will be open on Saturday from10AM to 2PM. 

The Saturday Farmers Market on Library Green will be closed.

Lincoln Park Pool will have a revised public swim schedule Friday- Sunday. Park pool hours will be 4-8PM. Weekend swim lessons will continue as scheduled. 

Flowers (City) Park splash pad will operate this weekend from noon-8:00 pm. 

Hudson Park Beach is currently closed due to heavy rains, but may reopen for the weekend, conditions permitting.
