Gov. Ned Lamont activated the state's hot weather protocols Wednesday and local communities issued advisories in response to the hot and humid conditions.
The heat can be dangerous, and so this summer officials want the public to know the difference between heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Heat exhaustion includes dizziness, nausea or weakness.
Officials say to sip water, move to cooler areas and loosen clothing if you are feeling any of these symptoms as heat exhaustion can lead to heat stroke.
If you feel dizzy or confused, or if someone falls unconscious, call 911.
Experts say heat stroke is common in children because their bodies heat up more quickly than adults.
To find cooling center locations, call 211.
