... Excessive heat warning remains in effect until 7 PM CDT
Saturday...

* heat index values... ranging from 100 to 110.

* Timing... through Saturday evening.

* Impacts... the heat and humidity may cause heat stress during
outdoor exertion or extended exposure. The very Young, elderly,
those without air conditioning, and those participating in
strenuous outdoor activities will be the most susceptible.
Vehicle interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of
minutes. Never leave pets, children or the elderly unattended in
parked vehicles. The extended period of high heat and humidity
will worsen the effects of heat stress.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures and high humidity will occur. This
combination will lead to a dangerous situation in which heat
illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-
conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check on relatives and
neighbors, especially the elderly.

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.
