Memories: Texas HEAT this week!
Northeast Texans are catching another glimpse this week of what became routine last year, triple digit streaks.
With clear skies and scarce wind, this could pose a threat to us, especially small children, pets, and the elderly. Take extra precaution this week while outdoors. Officials also remind you to check the backseat. Multiple heat-related deaths have already been reported this year due to children being left in a hot car.
Last year, 206 heat-related deaths occurred in the U.S., most of which occurred at the victims' homes. If your air conditioning breaks or if you don't have an A/C unit, you're strongly encouraged to seek assistance.
