To avoid becoming dehydrated during cleanup efforts from a storm, drink plenty of fluids, especially water. This is particularly true on days when temperatures reach 90 F and higher.
People who have medical conditions that require a fluid restrictive diet or who have a problem with fluid retention should consult a physician before increasing their consumption of fluids. How much water you need to consume depends on your level of physical activity and your age.
Help to avoid becoming dehydrated by staying out of the direct sun, wearing light-colored loose-fitting clothing, limiting physical activity and using fans when available.
