Heat worse for those with no air conditioning

August 9, 2007

Albany -- Most of us consider air conditioning a necessity. But to some South Georgians, it's a luxury.

There may be more people around than you think who don't have air conditioners in their homes.

This record heat can be especially dangerous for those folks who have to find creative ways to stay cool.

They're drinking lots of water, keeping the shades down, and placing fans in windows. But they say it's still hot.

"In the evening time when the sun goes down, its still hot in there," said East Albany resident, Gloria Jackson. "But when its cool out late at night, it'll start to cool off in the house. But when that sun is beaming, its hot! We have to just sit up and fan or whatever, but its hot."

No one has gotten sick because of the heat so far in this East Albany neighborhood.

If you know someone who doesn't have air conditioning, especially the elderly and young children, you should check up on them to make sure they're okay.
