A Heat Advisory remains in effect through at least Sunday and those who must be outside are urged to use extreme caution in the record-breaking temperatures.
Hopkinsville Fire Department Captain Elmer Greene says the best bet is to stay out of the heat as much as possible.
You can get overheated faster than you might think and that’s why it’s important to make an effort to avoid the direct sun as much as possible.
Residents should take frequent breaks in a shady area if working outdoors or go inside an air conditioned building to rest often if possible. The National Weather Service forecasts the high temperatures to top out over 100 every day for the foreseeable future, so the Heat Advisory will likely be extended.
