July 18, 2019

The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for our area. An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will create a DANGEROUS SITUATION. Stay in an air-conditioned environment, stay out of the sun, and check on elderly relatives and neighbors. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in a vehicle under any circumstance. This is especially true during hot weather when a car`s interior can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

The details of the warning are as follows:

EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 PM EDT
SUNDAY

* HEAT INDEX VALUES - Near 100 this afternoon, 102 to 107 on
Friday afternoon, 107 to 112 on Saturday afternoon, and 104 to
109 on Sunday afternoon.

* TEMPERATURES - Maximum readings near 90 this afternoon, in the
middle and upper 90s on Friday afternoon, near 100 on Saturday
afternoon, and in the upper 90s on Sunday afternoon. Overnight
lows will range mainly from the middle 70s to the lower 80s.

* TIMING - The most dangerous of the heat and humidity will occur
from mid afternoon into the early evening each day.

* IMPACTS - The excessive heat and humidity may cause heat stress
or heat stroke. The most susceptible individuals are the
elderly and those with pre-existing health issues.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to the early morning or the late evening.

Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing. Drink plenty of water. To reduce your risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in a shaded or air conditioned environment.

Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency, call 911 IMMEDIATELY.
