“We are expecting some of the most dangerous heat temperatures of the season. We are advising
all persons to stay in as much as possible and keep hydrated. Do not forget pets. Not only do they need more water but walking them on pavements and sidewalks could be dangerous to the pads on their feet due to the excess heat.” Axe added.
