BROOKLYN - Temperatures rose into the triple digits in some parts of the borough today as a heat wave continues to stifle the region.

The National Weather Service has issued excessive heat warnings for a huge section of the country, forecasting temperatures near or above 100 degrees right through the weekend.

Some Brooklyn residents headed to Coney Island today to cool off at the beach and along the boardwalk. Many agreed that they'll take beach weather over the snow any day.

City officials advise residents to stay hydrated, keep away from strenuous activity during peak hours and wear light clothing to avoid heat-related illnesses. Signs of heat illness include nausea, exhaustion and dizziness. Submit photos and videos of how you are beating the heat
