RadioOnFire.com - Baltimore City health officials on Monday declared a Code Red Extreme Heat Alert in effect from Tuesday through Sunday. The advisory covers the weekend of Artscape.

“Excessive heat is the leading weather-related killer in the United States. The effects of extreme heat are exacerbated in urban areas, especially when combined with high humidity and poor air quality,” Health Commissioner Dr. Letitia Dzirasa said in a statement. “Extreme heat is particularly dangerous to young children, older adults, and those with chronic medical conditions. I encourage all residents to take the necessary steps to protect themselves as well as their families, neighbors, and pets.”
