BOSTON – Starting Wednesday, Boston is preparing for a heatwave.
The temperatures will rise into the 90s and that adds to the already humid and humid air that we have experienced in the last few days. This has led the incumbent mayor Kim Janey to declare a heat emergency.

Extreme heat can be dangerous, especially if you already have health problems. The declaration of a heat emergency has opened cooling centers and dead sprays and pools across the city. From Wednesday to Friday, the city’s cooling centers are open from 10:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Also, remember to limit your outdoor activities, drink plenty of water, and sit in shaded areas if possible. Do not leave children or pets in the car.
At a press conference on Tuesday, incumbent Mayor Kim Janey spoke about a new program designed to help some of the most vulnerable residents as temperatures rise.
“We are allocating resources to provide instant heat relief to our most vulnerable residents, and we have launched a pilot project through the Department of Environment Agestrong and the Boston Public Health Commission and the Boston Housing Authority to identify and provide them with the residents in greatest need to be supplied with cooling support. “
Some areas of the city are hotter due to the altitude and limited shade from trees, and there is more sidewalk than grass. The city guides therefore remind you to take it easy for the next few days.
