July in New Orleans: Tips on Staying Cool

July in New Orleans can be extraordinarily hot. With temperatures reaching above 90 degrees Fahrenheit, spending too much time outside can actually be dangerous to your health. Those who are overweight, over 65 years old, or have prior medical conditions are the most at risk. Here are some tips to staying cool this summer:
  • Stay inside
  • Avoid overexerting yourself
  • Drink plenty of water
Keeping cool this summer could be the difference between staying relaxed and taking a trip to the emergency room. It's important to check in on friends and neighbors who may be at risk.
