Don't try to battle hot summer temperatures without the proper preparations - heat illness can be life-threatening.
This summer has seen temperatures climb well into the high 90s, with humidity that will take one's breath away.
According to Kentucky Mesonet, the state's official source for weather and climate data, temperatures in Taylor County last week averaged 90 degrees. But this coming week, temperatures are expected to cool off a couple degrees.
When heat is at high intensity, everyone is at risk for heat illness.
