Health Department issues heat warning

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The record heat we’ve been experiencing is prompting a warning.

Over the next few days, temperatures are expected to be the hottest of the year and the Health Department is urging people to take extra precautions to make sure no one gets hurt.

The department says two children in New Mexico have died in the last five years from heatstroke after being left in a hot car. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
