BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Acting Mayor Kim Janey declared a heat emergency from Monday, June 28, to Wednesday, June 30.

Temperatures are expected to be in the mid 90s and with high humidity.

“It is going to be dangerously hot so I’m asking everyone to take steps to stay safe over the next few days. Let’s look out for each other, Boston. If you see someone outside who appears in distress and needs help, call 911 right away,” Mayor Janey said in a statement. “Drink plenty of water. Try to avoid strenuous outdoor activity during the middle of the day. And find ways to stay cool. Anyone who needs a place to beat the heat can come inside and rest in the air conditioning at one of our cooling centers.”

Janey said that Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF) will be open as cooling centers from 10:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m Monday through Wednesday.
