Dangerous heat hits the Illinois Valley

Posted by wlpo on August 24, 2014

Monday could be the hottest day of the year so far.

There’s a Heat Advisory from until 10pm Monday in the Illinois Valley. It’ll be in the low to mid-90s but when you add the humidity it could feel like 105 or hotter. If you have to work outside today wear light-colored clothes and drink plenty of water.

Illinois Valley Community Hospital in Peru is offering its cafeteria as a cooling center.  The Department of Human Services office on Centennial Drive in Ottawa is also open as a cooling center.

High temps should be back in the low-80s by Wednesday.
