UNDATED - Heat waves are a major killer of people during the summer and the National Weather Service is one source for tips on how to stay safe during a heat wave such as the one that now has its grip on Georgia.

The death of a man near Macon Sunday may have been heat-related. (See separate story.)

For three days now, temperatures in north Georgia have been about 10 degrees above normal for this time of year and the heat index by 2:00 Monday afternoon was around 100 in some places with no break in the hot weather expected all week. (See separate story.)

The link below offers information on heat waves and how to safely cope with them.
