Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:30 AM EDT Jul. 20, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory now in effect until 8 PM EDT this evening...

* heat index values... in the mid 90s to around 100 degrees.

* Timing... into this evening. The highest heat index values will
occur during the afternoon into early evening.

* Impacts... the heat and humidity may cause heat stress during
outdoor exertion or extended exposure. Extreme heat can cause
illness and death among the at-risk population who can not
stay cool.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory is issued when the combination of heat and
humidity is expected to make it feel like it is 95 to 99 degrees
for two or more consecutive days, or 100 to 104 degrees for any
length of time.

New York City residents should call 3-1-1 to obtain "beat the
heat" safety tips.

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

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.

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! In cases of heat stroke call 9 1 1.

Issued: 3:37 AM EDT Jul. 20, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Air quality alert in effect from 11 am this morning to 11 PM EDT
this evening...

The New York state department of environmental conservation has
issued an air quality health advisory for the following counties...

Suffolk... Nassau... Richmond... Kings... Queens... New York... Bronx...
Westchester... Rockland.

Air quality levels in outdoor air are predicted to be greater than
an air quality index value of 100 for the pollutant of ground level
ozone. The air quality index... or aqi... was created as an easy way
to correlate levels of different pollutants to one scale. The higher
the aqi value... the greater the health concern.

When pollution levels are elevated... the New York state department
of health recommends that individuals consider limiting strenuous
outdoor physical activity to reduce the risk of adverse health
effects. People who may be especially sensitive to the effects of
elevated levels of pollutants include the very Young... and those
with preexisting respiratory problems such as asthma or heart
disease. Those with symptoms should consider consulting their
personal physician.

A toll free air quality hotline has been established so New York
residents can stay informed on the air quality situation. The toll
free number is 1-800-535-1345.
