Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Warning
Issued: 10:29 AM EDT Jul. 28, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat warning in effect until 8 PM EDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Newport/Morehead City has issued
an excessive heat warning... which is in effect until 8 PM EDT
this evening. The heat advisory is no longer in effect.

* Heat index values... up to 115.

* Timing... this afternoon and early evening.

* Impacts... heat related illness will become likely with
prolonged exposure.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot
temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a dangerous
situation in which heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of
fluids... stay in an air-conditioned room... stay out of the sun...
and check up on relatives and neighbors.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during
warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
temperatures in a matter of minutes.

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.
