Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Watch
Issued: 3:27 AM EDT Jul. 24, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat watch remains in effect from Monday morning
through Monday afternoon...

* heat index values... up to 107 due to temperatures in the upper
90s... and dewpoints in the lower 70s.

* Timing... highest heat indices Monday afternoon.

* Impacts... the combination of the heat and humidity will
increase the risk for heat related health issues... especially
for the elderly... those with chronic health problems such as
lung and heart disease... those working outdoors... and other heat
sensitive groups of people.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

An excessive heat watch means that the combination of heat and
humidity could create a dangerous situation in which heat
illnesses are 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.

Seniors and those with chronic health problems or mental health
conditions are at an increased risk. Homes without air
conditioning can be much hotter than outdoor temperatures.

Use air conditioning to stay cool at home or go to a place that
has air conditioning. Check on vulnerable friends... family members
and neighbors. For New York City residents... to find a NYC cooling
center call 3-1-1 or visit NYC.Gov/oem
