Excessive Heat Warning
Statement as of 9:06 PM CDT on July 28, 2015

... Excessive heat warning now in effect until 9 PM CDT
Wednesday...

* timing... dangerous heat index values will continue during the
late morning and afternoon on Wednesday.

* Heat index values... up to 106 due to temperatures in the lower
90s and dewpoints in the middle 70s.

* Impacts... the combination of hot temperatures and high
humidity will likely lead to an increased risk of heat-
related stress and illness. The very Young... the elderly...
those without air conditioning... and those participating in
strenuous outdoor activities will be the most susceptible.
Also... car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter
of minutes.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When
possible... reschedule strenuous activities to the 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 immediately.

People in the St. Louis metropolitan area can get information
about cooling centers or energy assistance related to the
excessive heat by calling the United way of greater St. Louis at
800-427-4626... or if calling from a land line phone dial 2-1-1.
You can also call cool down St. Louis at 314-241-7668.
