A significant heat wave is hitting the Central Coast this weekend, with record breaking temperatures up to 110 degrees expected in Paso Robles.
Piblic Health Officials are recommending everyone to stay indoors and to stay hydrated, but if one must work outside in the heat, make sure to take plenty of precautions.
"When you start to get heat exhaustion, the types of things you see are excessive sweating, headache, nausea and rapid pulse," said Penny Borenstein, San Luis Obispo County Health Officer.
"I soak my bandana and then keep it under my hat that way it keeps the sun off my skin and keeps me cool" said Kyle Lemons, an employee of Mike Martin Seal Coating.
Whether it's packing an ice chest full of water or wearing a hat to protect yourself from the sun, everyone must pay extra attention to the heat for the next few days.
San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties are not opening up any cooling centers, but they do recommend going into public libraries or a grocery store to beat the heat.
