Issued: 2:56 AM EDT Jul. 21, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect from noon today to 6 PM EDT this
evening...

The National Weather Service in Newport/Morehead City has issued
a heat advisory, which is in effect from noon today to 6 PM EDT
this evening.

* Timing... this afternoon and early evening.

* Impacts... prolonged exposure or any activity may lead to heat
related illnesses that require immediate medical attention.

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. Keep pets inside if possible.

   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.

call or wave for help.
