DOVER, Del.- With temperatures soaring into the high 90s the next couple of days, Dover residents are looking for a place to cool off.

Silver Lake Park is a popular spot for swimming for and fishing. Amber Manchester and her son Austin are spending the beginning of summer in the water. If the season continues like she thinks it will, they will be staying put in the lake.

"With a lot more heat and humidity, hopefully there are a lot more places to cool off," she said.

The water is a fun place for her son to play but she also makes sure Austin stays hydrated.

"Just make sure they stay hydrated, drink a lot of water while they're outside playing," she said."

Drinking water is the key to having a safe and fun summer. Dr. Ashok Subramarian with Milford Memorial Hospital said heat exhaustion can creep up on people who are not hydrated.

"Early on you'll be sweating profusely, you may start to develop some muscle cramping, nausea, headaches, lightheadedness, dizziness," he said.

Subramarian said that on hot days the hospital will see up to 10 people suffering from heat exhaustion.
