Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 10:19 AM CDT Aug. 18, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect until 7 PM CDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Houston/Galveston has issued a
heat advisory, which is in effect until 7 PM CDT this evening.

* Event... heat index values between 105 and 110 degrees across the
advisory area.

* Timing... this afternoon.

* Impact... prolonged exposure to the heat and/or exertion outdoors
without proper hydration and other precautionary actions may
result in heat exhaustion or heat stroke.

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.





Special Statement
Issued: 4:53 AM CDT Aug. 18, 2017 – National Weather Service

... High heat index values expected today...

Very warm temperatures coupled with high humidity will produce
heat index values between 103 and 107 degrees. A heat advisory
may yet be required later today if heat index values of 108 or
higher become likely.

Whether or not heat advisories are issued, you need to protect
yourself and others from the impacts of the heat. If outside, stay
hydrated, take breaks in the shade as often as possible and limit
strenuous activities. If driving, never leave kids, pets or
anyone with limited mobility alone in a vehicle for even a few
minutes as rapidly rising temperatures could reach dangerous or
even deadly levels. Remember to look before you lock! Know the
signs of heat stress and seek medical attention if you suspect
that you or someone else is experiencing heat illness.
