VINCENNES, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A Heat Advisory remains in effect Tuesday, as meteorologists warn we could see heat index values above 100 degrees for the next few days.

With the dangerous heat building over the area, INDOT wants to be sure drivers are prepared for heat-related emergencies while on the roads. The best way to prepare, officials say, is to have an emergency kit in your vehicle.

INDOT suggests you pack the following items:

  • Cell phone, charger
  • First Aid kit
  • Flashlight, flares
  • Jumper cables, tire pressure gauge, jack (and ground mat)
  • Work gloves, change of clothes, durable shoes
  • Water, paper towels

Officials in Greene County have opened a cooling center for those who need to beat the heat indoors. It will be open Tuesday and Wednesday from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. in the North Shelter House in Bloomfield Park.
