Notify NYC - Notification
Notification issued 7/29/15 at 3:25 PM. With the heat indices expected to remain in the mid to high 90s through Thursday, the National Weather Service has extended the previously issued citywide Heat Advisory until 8:00 PM on Thursday, 7/30. These conditions are dangerous to health, especially for people without air conditioning, older adults, and people with chronic health conditions. New Yorkers should use air conditioning to stay cool, go to a place that has air conditioning if it is not available at home, drink water at regular intervals, and limit strenuous activity. New York City has opened cooling centers through Thursday around the five boroughs. Please visit http://www.nyc.gov/oem or call 311 for more information on cooling center locations and hours.
