Sussex County Deals With A Stretch Of Hot Temperatures

Posted: Updated:
SUSSEX COUNTY, Del - At 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday the temperature in downtown Lewes was 94 degrees. It might have been the coolest afternoon for the remainder of the week.
 
The heat did not deter boaters from using the public ramps in Lewes. There was consistent activity of water crafts being prepped for launch and those returning from time off shore. Tuesday's heat did not bother Dover's Nathan Spence. On his day off Spence was wearing a long sleeved shirt as he got his boat off its trailer. "It (the shirt) blocks the sun. If you are wearing the right material it wipes the sweat off and keeps you cool," Spence explained.
 
Expected higher temperatures could trigger warnings and recommendations from local government agencies to help people avoid health issues related to the heat . "If you do not have air conditioning you need to be somewhere where you can (get cooled)," Sussex County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Special Operations Coordinator Glenn Marshall cautioned. "If you are closed in with temperatures of that significance bad things are going to happen."
 
The EMS has communicated with fire departments within the county the places for people to go if they are unable to stay cool at home. Places along the coast include libraries, malls and outlets.
