Beshear warns against extreme heat

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Governor Andy Beshear gave a “Team Kentucky” update this morning in which he gave a message to Kentuckians.

Beshear told the Commonwealth that we’ve survived many a weather phenomenon and he wants everyone to survive this one too. The Governor said a significant portion of Kentucky is under a heat warning and simply told people to stay inside if possible.

Beshear said heat indices will reach over 100 degrees Fahrenheit on Friday afternoon, and the risk of heat-related illness is much higher than average.
