The hot and humid weather had more people looking for ways to cool off this weekend.

Elks Pool in Grand Forks had a busy weekend with swimmers trying to escape the heat.

As the heat index exceeded 100 degrees, lifeguards were on the lookout for anyone who was dehydrated.

Lifeguards go through the locker rooms after every shift to make sure everyone is feeling well. Also, the pool staff make frequent announcements to remind swimmers to drink plenty of water.

"For the signs, it's just basically if people are laying motionless, or sweating uncontrollably. So we just kind of walk around the deck to make sure everyone is looking okay," Elks Pool Assistant Manager Amanda Frank said.

The Excessive Heat Warning will continue into the early part of this week. Drink plenty of water, limit your time outdoors, and stay in the shade.
