Pennsylvania’s Department of Aging is asking people to check in on their older family and neighbors during a statewide heat advisory issued for the weekend. Locally temperatures will rest in the low to mid-nineties, but temperatures are expected to reach into the triple digits in the southern and eastern portions of the commonwealth. Senior citizens without sufficient fans or air conditioning should be moved to their local area agencies on aging or the home of a friend or relative where they can get some relief during the hottest parts of the day. The Public Utilities Commission is also offering advice on how not to break the bank in the heat, such as closing doors to little used rooms, keeping the indoor air temperature in the mid-seventies, and cooking outside.
