Heat and humidity approaching dangerous levels Submitted: 07/17/2013
Madison - Wisconsin health officials want people to be careful in the heat and humidity.

The Department of Health Services says last year 27 people died in Wisconsin because of heat-related issues.

This year, one heat-related death in Wisconsin has been reported.

That was last month in Juneau County.

State officials urge neighbors to check on elderly residents, especially those without air conditioning. People without air conditioning are urged to stay with friends or family members who have it or seek out like senior centers, malls and libraries.
