Worcester County response to the heat
Worcester County is inviting the public to escape the heat by visiting the Worcester County Recreation Centers (WCRC) in Snow Hill; as well as any of the five Worcester County branch libraries, located in Ocean City, Ocean Pines, Berlin, Snow Hill and Pocomoke, during standard operating hours. The recreational centers are open Monday 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
There will be activities in progress today. Residents who show up can relax on the retractable bleachers, which can comfortably accommodate up to 520 people, and watch as area youth learn and practice new track skills on the four-lane competitive track.
The county is also offering tips to stay cool. Worcester County Emergency Services urges residents to drink plenty of fluids, avoid alcohol and caffeine, and take frequent breaks from stressful activities to avoid becoming dehydrated and overheated, which can lead to heat stroke or heat exhaustion.
