Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:35 PM CDT Aug. 23, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect from noon to 7 PM CDT Wednesday...

The National Weather Service in Shreveport has issued a heat
advisory... which is in effect from noon to 7 PM CDT Wednesday.

* Event... hot temperatures and elevated relative humidity values
will combine to result in heat index values between 105 and 110
degrees on Wednesday.

* Timing... the hottest portion of Wednesday will be between noon
and the early evening hours.

* Impact... heat related illnesses are possible. Caution is
recommended for those who will be outdoors and for persons
without air conditioned residences.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.

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.
