Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today urged New Yorkers statewide to take proper safety precautions as potentially dangerous heat conditions are expected Monday as heat index values will range from the mid-90s to low-100 degrees. This period of hot weather will result in an increased risk of heat stress and heat-related illness. People who are susceptible to heat related illnesses - including young children, the elderly, those who exercise outdoors, those involved in vigorous outdoor work, and those who have respiratory diseases such as asthma - should take necessary steps to stay cool as temperatures rise. New Yorkers should monitor local weather forecasts for the most up-to-date information.
