Excessive Heat Warning

Statement as of 3:25 PM EDT on July 24, 2016

Expires 6:00 PM EDT on July 25, 2016


... Excessive heat warning remains in effect until 6 PM EDT
Monday...

* temperatures... lows in the 70s tonight, then highs in the 95 to
100 degree range Monday afternoon.

* Heat index values... up to 105 degrees Monday afternoon.

* Impacts... the multiple day excessive heat will create hazardous
conditions. The potential for heat related health issues will be
high, especially for the elderly and for those already in poor
health.

* The multiple days of excessive heat will greatly affect those
who are attending outdoor activities, especially events with
large groups of people that are gathering in the direct sun.
Visitors not acclimated to the heat in our region this Summer
have a greater risk of being affected.

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.

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.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. During warm or hot weather 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.
