  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading.

The National Weather Service Heat Advisory map created on August 23

The National Weather Service issued an excessive heat warning for Thursday, saying severe storms are also possible across parts of Ohio, including Bowling Green.

The National Weather Service says over 100 million people have been put under heat alerts from the midwest to the Gulf Coast. Officials say the excessive heat advisory is a part of an August heat wave that is forecasted to last at least through the end of the week.

Bowling Green State University students are included in the heat advisory and can take preventative measures before attending class, as a mixture of heat and humidity has been shown to be dangerous to individuals.

BGSU released a statement Wednesday evening advising students, staff and faculty to take advantage of various buildings around the campus to stay cool. In addition, BGSU Student Engagement organizers are set to host a series of Beat the Heat events throughout campus.

The National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS) says there are multiple tips a person can follow to stay safe during extreme heat. Some preventative measures listed include the following:

  • Never leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles.
  • Drink plenty of water; even if you do not feel thirsty. Avoid drinks with caffeine.
  • Check on family, friends, and neighbors who do not have air conditioning and who spend much of their time alone.
  • Check on your animals frequently to ensure that they are not suffering from the heat.
  • Go to a designated public shelter if your home loses power during periods of extreme heat. Stay on the lowest floor out of the sunshine if air conditioning is not available.
