The "heatline" run by the Philadelphia Corporation for Aging is to keep operating through Tuesday. That's because the National Weather Service has extended an excessive heat warning for the Philadelphia area. The heatline is to operate from 8:30 a.m. to midnight, allowing people of all ages to get advice on precautions against the heat and detecting signs of heat stress.

People should drink plenty of non-alcoholic fluids, wear light and loose-fitting clothing, stay out of the sun and try to spend as much time as possible in air conditioned places.
