Many Long Islanders are looking for ways to beat the heat and stay safe as Sunday is expected to continue the trend of hot weather.
In Huntington Village on Saturday, many chose to eat indoors and get ice cream to stay cool.
In Dix Hills, people like the Sokol family decided to catch a movie inside a cool, air-conditioned theater.
During weather like this, doctors say it is important to know the symptoms of heat exhaustion, like dizziness, excessive sweating and muscle cramps.
An even more dangerous condition is heat stroke, which comes with symptoms like headaches, no sweating and a rapid pulse.
“When you cross over to heat stroke is when you have stroke-like symptoms difficulty talking weakness, less rousable that would be a true emergency,” said Dr. Mathew Harris, of Cohen’s Children Medical Center.
