An 87 year old woman has become the second heat related death in Delaware.
She died on Friday due to heat exposure, according to the Medical Examiner's Office. Her death occurred two days after a 55 year old man was found dead outside after heat exposure contributed to an underlying medical condition.
The Department of Health and Human Services issued a statement to remind everyone of the importance of remaining indoors in cool environments during the heat. It also reminds people to check on elders and those with disabilities.
There is also a 211 line for those who need immediate help cooling their homes.
