It's another scorcher on Galveston Island, which is sweltering under a fourth day of extreme summer heat.
“During the day it's too hot. They get burned easily and dehydrated, so usually when we go out, we go out after dinner when it's cooled off some,” said Galveston mom and resident, Melissa Franklin.
Franklin said each morning she drops her children off at one of two recreation centers that have been designated as places people of all ages can come stay cool during the hottest part of the day.
“They have food, air conditioner and drinks. Games, vending machines, it's wonderful,” said Franklin.
Unlike Houston, Galveston has a strong breeze that helps keep the island cool, but officials are keeping a close eye on the heat advisory issued by the national weather service.
Charlie Kelly, Galveston's emergency management coordinator said, “If you don't need to be outside, don't be outside, and if you're outside stay cool and drink plenty of water.”
Kelly said so far emergency management hasn't received many calls from people overcome by the extreme temperatures.
