An excessive heat warning is in effect for Hancock County and all surrounding counties until 8 p.m. Saturday.
Temperatures will be in the upper 90s, with heat indices up to 110 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
Excessive heat warnings are “issued when a prolonged period of dangerously hot weather will occur,” the weather service said.
“The combination of high temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a dangerous situation in which heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors,” the weather service advised.
50 North, at the corner of Melrose and Blanchard avenues in Findlay, is open as a cooling station from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. today and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
