Callaway County residents are adapting to the recent heat wave when temperatures have climbed to near or above the century mark for many days during July.
The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning for all of Callaway County until 7 tonight. The warning was caused by a dangerous combination of heat and humidity. The heat index was reported Thursday as between 105 and 110 degrees and is expected to rise back up to 105 this afternoon.
Fulton City Engineer Greg Hayes said the heat has been a problem for city work crews working outside during July.
