Seneca County – Be prepared for this weekend’s heat wave!! If you don’t have air conditioning in your home, visit a friend or a public place that does, such as a community center, store, mall, library, etc. Be sure to drink plenty of water, stay out of the sun, and avoid physical activity if possible. Those with lung conditions, the elderly, children and pets are most vulnerable to the heat and humidity so please look out for your fellow community members (humans and pets) this weekend!
