TELL CITY - When the temperature rises above 90 degrees and the humidity is high, any age group can suffer from heat stroke or heat exhaustion.
However, people 65 years of age and older are more prone to heat stress than younger people for several reasons.
The elderly are more likely to have a chronic medical condition that changes normal body responses to heat, take a prescription medicine that impairs the body's ability to regulate its temperature or that inhibits perspiration, and have difficulty adjusting to sudden changes in temperature.
