Heat wave has enveloped1 much of the mid-Atlantic and northeast. The temperatures are soaring2 to the upper 90s, things could make it downright unbearable3 for many and even dangerous for some. Kristen Welker of NBC station WCAU is in Philadelphia right now. Kristen, it’s good to see you, what's been done to help keep you and the folks there cool?


Good to see you too, Alex. Well, the city has actually set up a heat hot-line in all of the counties4 throughout our area, they’ve set up a heat hot-line, that's a number the folks can call if they're struggling in this weather. Of course there is particular concern about people at risk including senior citizens.

 

Senior centers like the one behind me, the Philadelphia Senior Center are encouraging seniors to come to the center, spend the day in the air conditioning. In fact, the Philadelphia Senior Center just got two brand new air conditioning units today, and one woman, one senior woman was so moved by this, that she actually started crying, she said this makes the difference between having a bearable and unbearable summer.

 

And of course, officials are also asking everyone to check on their family members who might be elderly and their friends and also of course your pets. And everyone’s best friend right now---water, it is important that everyone stay hydrated, expect, it's expected to get up to 97 degrees here in Philadelphia today, Alex.

 

Ouch, Ok, thank you so much, concrete and collected, Kristen Welker from WCAU, we appreciate that.
