High heat and humidity will continue to plague Central Indiana this week. With temperatures forecasted to rise above 90 degrees, and the heat index to top 100, Hoosiers are doing all they can to keep cool.

During Carmel Fest Monday, the dangerous heat forced organizers to develop a game plan to keep people safe. They limited volunteer shifts to just two hours and distributed lots of water. Fans were setup, some that even squirted water, so people could stay cool.

Firefighters and police were on hand to help, in case someone suffered heat exhaustion.

We aren’t the only ones dealing with the heat wave. Cities all across the East Coast are experiencing some “historic” heat. The National Weather Service has issued an “excessive heat advisory” for several northeastern cities, including New York.
