A heat wave is spreading across Delmarva with hot air that is expected to bring the temperatures up into the 90’s.

The heat index values are expected to reach over a hundred over the next three days.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that so far the emergency services in Salisbury have not gotten any heat-related calls.

But residents are urged to take precautions with Code Orange warnings.

Among the recommendations are to keep inside a cool place and drink lots of liquids, particularly water.

In addition for someone suspected of a heat stroke they should be put in a cool place and you should apply a cold compress.

911 should then be called.

And, avoid leaving children outside during the heat.
