Ohio to see fire, healthrisks with heat wave
By LISA CORNWELLAssociated Press
CINCINNATI — A heatwave rolling across Ohio senttemperatures and irritabilitysoaring Thursday, promisinga scorching start to the JulyFourth holiday weekend andan end to the relief providedby cool nights the past fewweeks.Nicole Lewis said she couldfeel the effects of the increas-ing humidity as she waited fora bus in downtown Cincinnati,where the temperature in theearly afternoon was in themid-90s and rising.“I’m already feeling fussyand cranky,” Lewis said,while fanning with a bro-chure. Dressed in shorts anda sleeveless shirt, Lewis saidshe wished she was home inher apartment complex’s poolinstead of heading to an orien-tation for her janitorial job.“When it starts to get likethis, I try not to go out inthe day if I can avoid it, butI didn’t have a choice,” saidLewis, who lives in nearbyBatavia.Low humidity the past fewweeks and the drier groundallowed many areas to cooloff at night “like deserts,” saidSeth Binau, a meteorologistwith the National WeatherService’s Wilmington office.But on Thursday, exces-sive-heat warnings and heatadvisories were in effectthroughout the state.Late afternoon tempera-tures in the Cincinnati regionreached 103 and Dayton’s 102degrees had tied the daily andmonthly record for that cityset in June 28, 1944, accord-ing to the National WeatherService.The thermometer hadreached 100 degrees inColumbus by late afternoon,and Toledo’s 102-degreereading by 3:59 p.m. brokethat city’s daily record of 101 set June 28, 1934. BothWapakoneta and Defiancein western Ohio reached 106degrees by early evening, butno records were available forthose cities.Cooling centers were des-ignated in many parts of thestate to help Ohioans needingto escape the heat.State health officials urgedpeople not to spend too muchtime outdoors and to stayhydrated to avoid heat-relatedillness over the next severaldays. In Cleveland, MayorFrank Jackson asked residentsto check on neighbors as tem-peratures were expected to bethe 90s by Saturday.Darlene Backus, 58, of Cincinnati, was equipped witha bottle of water and a cap asshe waited at another down-town Cincinnati bus stop.Backus, who was job hunt-ing, said she has avoidedturning on her air conditionerbecause of the expense.“I need to keep electricbills down, so I will try tostick it out as long as I can,”she said.Tom Curdes, owner of Barron’s Lawn Service insuburban Toledo, said hisemployees pushed to get moreyards done earlier in the weekto beat the afternoon heat. Healso sent out an extra mow-ing crew on Thursday so hisworkers would be done early.“We’re just trying to be assafe as possible,” he said.High temperatures com-bined with increased windsand still relatively low humid-ity levels in parts of Ohio ledthe weather service to issuewarnings of a high fire dan-ger from noon into Thursdaynight, especially in the north-west area.Dry and windy conditionscould lead fires to spreadquickly if any develop, saidMartin Thompson, a meteo-rologist with the weather ser-vice’s Cleveland office.“We don’t recommend out-side burning,” he said.Soaring temperatures andincreasing humidity were pre-dicted to create a “double-edged sword” over the nextfive days in much of south-west Ohio, making the airmore oppressive, but hope-fully reducing the fire risk,”Binau said.
