heatThe National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory for the area from Noon until 8 PM today. Heat index values Wednesday will be around 100 degrees, the Service says.

This hot and humid weather could be dangerous for anyone with outdoor plans on wednesday. Elderly adults and young children are especially susceptible to heat illnesses.

Precautionary/preparedness actions:

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and
Neighbors.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activity 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 9 1 1. [TLS]
