Outages and energy usage becoming an issue as heat wave continues

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — The department encourages residents, especially the elderly and young children who are more vulnerable to heat-related illnesses, to wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing; avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.; drink plenty of fluids, especially water; avoid drinks containing alcohol and caffeine; wear sunscreen when out in the sun and make sure children and animals are never left in a parked car for any amount of time as temperatures inside a car can rise to dangerous levels within minutes.

As for a break in the hot weather, meteorologists are forecasting cooler temperatures Sunday into Monday.

The National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center has placed all of Western New York into a slight risk zone for severe thunderstorms beginning today particularly for tonight.

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
