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, July 30, 2015.
These conditions are dangerous to health, especially for people without air conditioning, older adults, and people with chronic health conditions. Harlemites 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. Harlem has opened cooling centers through Thursday around the five boroughs.
