Heat advice that could save your life

The heat's been the hot topic for weeks, and we're looking at triple digits like Thursday.  It made for a great beach day but lifeguards warn this type of weather can make people dizzy.

Partly cloudy or not, when it comes to the heat it doesn't make a difference.

"Texas heat is amazing, but this is like the most humid hot heat I've ever experienced," Joni Gatti said.

"It's pretty hot, it's humid. We're here from Denver on vacation so it's a huge difference, but it's not too bad," Justin Bell said.

Beach goers aren't complaining but lifeguards say they've got a lot of work cut out for them.

"Our two big ones are going to be heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Heat exhaustion is usually lightheadedness and that's something we can treat right at the beach, if it's minor we get people in the shade cool them off," Beach Patrol Captain Peter Davis said.

Which could lead to heat stroke something you really don't want to happen.

"You're talking about a real danger of dying or severe health problems, that's an immediate transfer to the hospital and higher level intervention," Davis said.

Davis is constantly reminding people to drink lots of water.

"Stay super hydrated with the right stuff not the wrong stuff, and kind of monitor yourself and your family just make sure everybody is feeling good and not feeling dizzy or disoriented and if they do start feeling this way seek shade, eat food and if you feel good just go back out or call it a day," Davis said.
