Albany- Another hot, humid day in Southern Georgia kept many people inside. A heat advisory was issued for Saturday with temperatures climbing to 96 and the heat index around 110.

There's a chance for another advisory Sunday. Saturday, some kids emerged from their air conditioned homes to enjoy the cooler temperatures this evening in turtle park. Keith Hampton brought his five year old son Tionne and his friend Maurice Shorter out to play after being cooped up all day.

"We mostly stayed inside to avoid the heat and waited until it later on in the afternoon to come out," said Keith Hampton, of Albany.

Air conditioning is the number one protective factor against heat related illness and death. To prevent heat related illnesses drink plenty of water; wear lightweight, light colored, loose fitting clothing; and reducing strenuous activities.
