Officials urge caution in heat

Jill Ballinger/GAZETTE EDITOR
Temperatures are expected to rise above the century mark this weekend, and as such, local officials are urging people to be careful. Residents should be prepared for rising temperatures and extreme fire danger. Heat-related power outage is also a possibility, according to PG&E. People should avoid direct sunlight and outdoor activities in the afternoon. They should drink plenty of water and avoid caffeine and alcohol. Wearing loose fitting clothing and sunscreen are also advised. Even though it is hot, rivers and lakes can still be extremely cold. Anyone recreating around water should exercise caution.
