KING5 - Heat Related Deaths

KING5.com | News for Seattle, Washington | KING5 Top Stories:

"In Seattle, near 90-degree temperatures only happen three days out of the year, on average. That's why the National Weather Service issued a heat advisory for the very first time.

In the summer of 1992 up to 60 people died from heat-related deaths in the Seattle area. On average, Seattle will see four heat-related deaths a year.

When you're trying to cool yourself off, experts say when it's 86 degrees or higher, using a fan may actually hurt more than help. It's better to use the fan in conjunction with a spray bottle or a cold wet towel to help draw the heat away from your body. They also advise drinking plenty of fluids and avoiding excessive physical activity."

They didn't bother to say if any one died a heat-related death yesterday.
