Heat Advisory
Issued: 8:12 AM CDT Jul. 23, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory remains in effect until 8 PM CDT Sunday...

A heat advisory remains in effect for all of southwest Indiana
and the pennyrile region of west Kentucky through 8 PM CDT Sunday.

* The combination of high temperatures in the mid 90s will
combine with oppressive humidity to produce heat indices around
105 degrees each day.

* A heat index of 105 degrees or higher is considered the level
at which the body becomes more susceptible to heat exhaustion
and heat stroke.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

a heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will 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.

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.
