Omaha’s high temperature reached 102 Wednesday and hot weather is expected the next few days.
Alegent Health spokeswoman Jodi Hoatson says 12 people were treated in the five hospitals’ emergency rooms for heat-related illness as of Wednesday evening. Heat exhaustion and heat stroke can set in quickly during hot weather unless you take precautions.
