Feedback at 5:00: How are you staying safe in the heat?

Posted: Updated:

When the temperatures hit such high numbers in Northern  Michigan, the Michigan Department of Community Health is urging people to protect themselves.

When thermometers rise into the high 80's and above, your body temperature can rise.

That can result in dizziness, dehydration, and heat stroke.

The department advises people to try and stay out of the sun or outdoors in general, make sure you drink plenty of water, or check out an area cooling station -- we've posted those as they come in on 9and10news.com

For tonight's feedback at  5:00, we asked what precautions you are taking to keep yourself and others safe in the extreme heat.
