Temperatures will approach 100 degrees in Alhambra on Thursday. Best place to beat the heat? Under the fountains at Alhambra Park.
The LA County Department of Public Health also issued a heat alert for Thursday and Friday, predicting temperatures in the hundreds in the eastern San Gabriel Valley.
“While people don’t need to be told it’s hot outside, they do need to be reminded to take care of themselves, children, the elderly, and pets when the weather gets hotter,” said Jonathan E. Fielding, MD, MPH, Director of Public Health and Health Officer. “When temperatures are high, prolonged sun exposure may cause dehydration, heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke. Never leave children, elderly people, or pets unattended in vehicles, even with the windows ‘cracked or opened,’ because temperatures inside can quickly rise to life-threatening levels. It is illegal, according to California law, to leave children alone in a car.”
