Staying cool, preparing for more heat

MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. — Good thing we've had plenty of practice staying cool during hot summer days because even hotter weather is on it's way.

All over the area, kids are getting in their playground time early, before the sun gets too hot. Parks are abandoned during the heat of the day and more people are heading toward parks with water.

Watch the video for more on what area folks are doing to beat the heat.

People are asked to keep an especially close eye on kids and elderly. Red Cross workers are ready to help anyone handle the heat.Click here to read their safety tips.
