Doctors warn of extreme heat dangers

High temperatures here in the Bluegrass are expected to remain in the 90s at least until the weekend.

Health experts are warning everyone about the dangers.

Doctors say heat stroke can kill.

It can start as heat exhaustion but can elevate into heat stroke.

Experts also warn that victims are not always aware that they are in danger.

Symptoms include high fever, hot and dry skin and rapid heartbeat.

Senior citizens, the young and those who exercise outdoors are particularly susceptible to heat stroke.
