Statement as of 3:51 PM CDT on July 28, 2015

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

* temperature... highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. Peak heat
index values around 105.

* Impacts... anyone working outdoors and those with health
conditions may experience heat stress. Please take appropriate
precautions.

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 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.
