Posted: Updated:

With temperatures well into the 90's throughout the Hudson Valley, spending too much time outside could wind up being hazardous to your health. Doctor Shobhana Pathani who works at St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital says it's especially important for older people and young kids to stay cool.
