NEPTUNE - Temperatures hovered near the 100-degree mark in parts of New Jersey today and reached triple digits in some areas. For those without air conditioning, being inside can pose a health risk.

A housing complex in Neptune for senior citizens and the disabled is home to some without air conditioning. News 12 New Jersey featured a report on this complex in our 5 p.m. newscast and within an hour, a volunteer was on scene to deliver an air conditioner!

Earlier, Robert Kee, a former Enron product manager with a hip injury, was drinking ice water to stay cool. His air conditioning unit broke at the beginning of the season and he was doing his best to survive the heat.

During this extreme heat, the risk of heat exhaustion is higher than usual. The signs of heat exhaustion are:

Heavy sweating Paleness Muscle cramps FatigueWeakness Dizziness Headache Nausea or vomiting Fainting
