City paramedics were busy Tuesday evening treating dozens of people for heat exhaustion at a concert at Stage AE.

Thirty-eight people required treatment during the concert by Austin Mahone and others at the North Shore venue, city Public Safety Department spokeswoman Sonya M. Toler said. Of those, seven adults and a 14-year-old girl required hospital treatment, she said.

It was 78 at 8 p.m. at the National Weather Service station in Moon and the dew point remained pretty steady at 65, said meteorologist Rodney Smith.

“A dew point of 65 is relatively high but nothing extraordinary,” Smith said.
