Heat causes Nevada County health alert

The searing heat that hit the 90s Tuesday and could reach 100 over the next few days caused a health alert to be issued by the Nevada County Public Health Department late Tuesday afternoon.

The department urged residents to drink plenty of water and to avoid doing exercise or even standing in the direct sun during the heat wave, which could last into next week. People are also urged to use sunscreen and to seek immediate health care if they become ill.
