It’s definitely the ‘dog days’ of summer in Oklahoma, and Tulsa County has activated the ‘extreme heat plan.’ Among other things it means opening cooling stations for those who can’t get out of the heat. Those are Tulsa County Social Services, the Salvation Army, John 3:16, and the Equality Center. Joe Kralichek, Area Emergency Manager, says you can do your part to stay cool but staying inside if possible, keeping hydrated, and taking frequent breaks if you do have to be outside.  

Heat indexes well into triple digits are expected through Wednesday.
