Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 12:54 PM EDT Jun. 18, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory remains in effect until 7 PM CDT /8 PM EDT/ this
evening...

* temperature... highs in the low to mid 90s.

* Heat indices... peak heat indices of 100 to 105.

* Impacts... the extended duration of heat will lead to hazardous
conditions, particularly for the elderly and those with pre-
existing health conditions.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are
possible. Drink plenty of fluids... stay in an air-conditioned
room... stay out of the sun... and check up on relatives and
neighbors.

Take extra precautions... if you work or spend time outside. When
possible... reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or
evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat
stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when
possible and drink plenty of water.

To reduce risk during outdoor work... the occupational safety and
health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by
heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke
is an emergency... call 9 1 1.
