The glaring summertime heat on the Outer Banks can usually be remedied by a cool dip in the Atlantic Ocean. However, all this sun has another unintended consequence from the heat. When you find yourself shopping or running any kind of errands along the stores found in Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, and Nags Head make sure you bring the kids in with you and leave the pets at home.
As the weather gets hotter, highway patrol officers are asking people to be aware of just how hot your car can get. That means you don’t leave your kids or pets in your vehicle. Within the past month across the U.S. there have been two heat stroke deaths because kids were left in hot cars, and that brings the total to six so far this year.
Sergeant Marvin Williams of the North Carolina Highway Patrol in Greenville, North Carolina (NC) says it’s best not to leave your kids in the car at all, including when you’re going inside a store or unloading groceries. He says some people don’t realize just how fast it can get dangerously hot. Sadly, one child dies every 10 days in the U.S. after being left in a hot vehicle.
