Two girls get water dunked on them at splash park at Riverview Park on Thursday, July 27.

The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning, in effect through Thursday night. Temperatures will be in the mid-90s with high humidity, making it feel even hotter.

Cooling shelters are open in Louisville as part of Operation White Flag. The program offers shelter when heat indexes go above 95 degrees, as they will be this week.

Extreme heat events are happening more frequently as the climate changes. When it gets this hot, officials recommend drinking lots of water, staying inside a cooled building as possible and cooling off at public pools and splash parks.
