Excessive Heat Warning Issued In Tri-State

(Cincinnati) - Tri-State agencies are making sure people can beat the extreme heat throughout the weekend.

An Excessive Heat Warning is in effect until Saturday night, when feels-like temperatures could climb to 110 degrees.

Hamilton County Emergency Management says people should stay inside with the air conditioning on if that's an option and cover windows to keep the heat out.

AAA's car safety tips include keeping five bottles of water per passenger in the car and making sure cell phones are charged. Drivers should check their fluids and tires before hitting the road, as hot temperatures could cause tires to burst. Children and pets should never be left alone in hot vehicles. Ohio's Good Samaritan laws allow people to bust open windows of vehicles if a child or pet is inside.

The Cincinnati Recreation Commission will be offering free admission to all pools, except the Dunham Recreation Center all weekend.

In Butler County, the sheriff says anyone who needs to cool off can come hang out in the Patrol Headquarters on Hanover Street in Hamilton.
