Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 4:56 AM CDT Jun. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

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

The National Weather Service in Houston/Galveston has issued a
heat advisory, which is in effect from noon today to 6 PM CDT
this evening.

* Event... heat index near or above 108.

* Timing... this afternoon.

* Impact... prolonged exposure could lead to heat exhaustion,
illness or stroke if adequate precautions are not taken.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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 911.

Each year... a number of fatalities occur nationwide due to
children accidentally being left in vehicles during the Summer
months. In the past dozen years... 500 children have died due to
hyperthermia after being left in or gaining access to cars. Never
leave children or pets unattended in a vehicle not even for a
minute. Remember... beat the heat... check the backseat.
