Long Islanders try to keep cool in steamy weather
Residents lucky enough to have the day free flocked to the beach yesterday as temperatures soared into the 90s, while others were forced to sweat it out.
Dr. Faiz Khan, who works in the emergency room at Nassau University Medical Center, says the young and elderly need to be especially careful in the heat. He says he has already seen cases of dehydration and heat stroke.
Rising temperatures may mean a boom for businesses such as Ralph?s Italian Ices, but at Vito?s Pizza, owners say their slices aren?t selling as well as their iced tea.
