A code red extreme heat alert has been issued for Monday through Thursday as temperatures are expected to exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit, officials said.
"As Baltimore continues to experience very high temperatures this week, all residents should take precautions to protect against hyperthermia and dehydration," Baltimore City Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen said. "Heat is a silent killer and a public health threat, particularly for the young, the elderly and those with chronic medical conditions. I urge everyone stay cool, stay hydrated, and stay in touch with your neighbors, especially seniors and medically frail individuals who live alone."
