High temperatures are expected to continue to soar into the low 90s through most of this week, according to the National Weather Service.

The Floyd County Emergency Management Agency reminds locals to remain vigilant amid the summer heat.  Tim Herrington, Director, says it is important to drink plenty of water.  Also, avoid any type of strenuous activity during the heat of the day; leave these tasks for the early morning or late evening hours. Wear light-colored, loose-fitting clothing for outdoor activity. And, of course, keep a keen eye on your pets; make sure they have plenty of cool water and a cool place to stay.

Herrington additionally stresses that it is imperative to refrain from leaving children or pets in hot cars, even for a moment.
