Gov. Dannel Malloy is urging Connecticut residents, particularly those who are most vulnerable, to take precautions during the excessive heat and humidity over the next few days as a heat advisory is in effect for the entire state. Those who are looking for a place to get out of the heat can locate their nearest cooling center by calling 2-1-1.
“Excessively high temperatures can be dangerous for peoples’ health, especially among the elderly, young children, and those who work outdoors,” Malloy said in a statement Monday. “Drink lots of water, stay in the shade, and please keep an eye on those who are at greatest risk.”
