COLUMBIA CITY — Scorching, hot temperatures covered most of the nation yesterday, with the Whitley County area at temperatures above 100 degrees.
Michael Sabones, meteorologist in charge at the National Weather Service station in North Webster, said while they did not have an official report in for Whitley County, he estimates the county reached around 104 degrees.
Sabones said although today’s temperatures will be almost 10 degrees cooler, it will still be hot.
“I urge people to drink plenty of water, and if you’re body is telling you you’re overheated, take care of yourself,” said Sabones.
The dispatch in Columbia City reported one heat-related emergency call Thursday.
