Local News

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — More hot days are hitting Rochester this week.

Just like the previous couple of days, the City of Rochester is heatin up and a Cool Sweep is in effect for Wednesday.

“A lot of people are probably going to have a lot of heat exhaustion, maybe some heatstroke. The best thing for everybody to do is stay in the air conditioning, drink lots of fluid. If you are already thirsty, you’re already kind of a little late on it,” Rick Yeckel, operations Lieutenant from Monroe Ambulance said.
