July 2023 brought the world’s hottest weather in history. The U.S. had four conservative days of 90+ degree weather and over 55 million people were under a heat advisory. Across the globe, many countries suffered through the most oppressive temperatures ever documented. The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) expects the heat to continue and the hurricane season to intensify.
Here’s what you can do to stay safe in the hot weather: 1) stay inside if you can, 2) wear lightweight clothing when outside and stay in the shade, 3) drink water or eat ice, 4) wear a hat, and 5) wear sunscreen to protect your skin.
