Forecast Flirts with Freezing, City Opens Shelters

Tips For Beating the Heat

With the heat of July now in full force, citizens of New Orleans are seeking the shelter of their air-conditioned homes. But what about when there’s live music to be hear or a festival to attend? How do you survive the heat and humidity then? Luckily, NoDef has compiled some tips on how to beat the heat.

Summer Swelter Shelter

August in New Orleans is always hot, but some days are hotter than other. According to the NWS, heat indices are expected to top 105 today. The weather is a great excuse to suck down frosties in a cool bar. However, the heat can also be dangerous, if not fatal at these levels. So, the City is reacting by opening an emergency cooling station for those without an air-conditioned sanctuary.
