For a second day in a row, Tulsa is under a Heat Alert. EMSA issued the alert Thursday after treating several more people for heat-related illnesses.

The temperature reached 98 degrees Thursday. Most of the heat related calls were from the elderly who say they had trouble breathing, were dizzy and had chest pains.

EMSA encourages folks to stay in air conditioning, drink plenty of water and check on the elderly or those who might be exposed to the heat.
