Heat wave heading our way


Eau Claire (WQOW) - September is just around the corner but that doesn't mean the lazy days of summer are over yet.

A warm up is expected to start Sunday.   And before we get there, the Eau Claire County Health Department is reminding everyone to be safe, especially if you live in a home without air conditioning.

According to the State Division of Public Health, there have been ten probable heat related fatalities in the state this summer.

Those most at risk are children and the elderly.  The health department says to stay indoors as much as possible and drink plenty of water.
