(UNDATED) - The extreme heat is putting people on-guard for the possibilities of heat stroke and heat exhaustion.

Dr. Dylan Cooper is an emergency room doctor with I.U. Health and says they're already seeing people coming in with symptoms.

Cooper says people will experience dizziness, confusion, nausea, vomiting, sweating, and the chills.
