Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Warning
Issued: 2:25 PM CDT Jul. 20, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat warning remains in effect until 8 PM CDT
Saturday...

* heat indices... from 105 to 109 degrees are expected during the
afternoon and early evening hours each day.

* Impacts... prolonged exposure to the heat and humidity may lead
to heat-related illnesses if precautions are not taken.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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 at once. Heat
stroke is an emergency. Call 9 1 1.

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.

An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot
temperatures and high humidity will create a dangerous situation
where heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of fluids and stay
in an air conditioned room. Stay out of the sun and check up on
relatives and neighbors. Temperatures within vehicles can become
lethal in a few minutes. Never leave children or pets in
vehicles. Remember to beat the heat... check the backseat.
