This weekend the area is forecast to see near record heat. Due to the sustained warmth, there is a possibility of power outages. The heat we are experiencing is wide-spread and impacting nearly all of the continental US. With temperatures locally expected to reach the lower to mid-90s, and triple digit heat forecast for the metropolitan areas, power outages are possible. If you lose power, please contact county dispatch at 814-623-1105.
Be sure to stay hydrated, and keep an eye on your pets and neighbors! Remember that the young and elderly are most likely to suffer from heat related illnesses.
