GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Experts are urging Piedmont residents to stay safe and cool this week with daily temperatures hitting near 100.

Since Saturday, eight people have been treated for signs of heat stroke at Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital.

Guilford County EMS had two calls for heat emergencies.

Even so, many are still finding ways to slow down their routines or workouts to stay cool.

Dozens of people used deep breathing to cool off at a Free Spirits yoga class at Center City Park Monday.

Experts say drinking water and limiting time in the sun can help reduce chances of heat stroke.

They also say it's best to work out or do outdoor activities early in the morning or in the evening after the sun goes down.
