EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING NOW IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM CDT SUNDAY.
Heat index will reach 105 to 115 each afternoon and
early evening.
The combination of hot temperatures and high
humidity will lead to an increased risk of heat-related stress and illness. The very young, the elderly, those without air conditioning, and those participating in strenuous outdoor activities will be the most susceptible. Also, car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.
An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of dangerously hot temperatures and high humidity will occur. In
addition, nighttime conditions will remain warm and muggy providing little chance for relief.
This combination will create
a dangerous situation in which heat-related illnesses are likely, especially for those living in un-air conditioned homes or
apartments.
People in the Warning area are advised to avoid poorly ventilated areas and prolonged work in the sun. Use air conditioning in your house or apartment if it is working correctly. If you do not have air conditioning, keep your house or apartment well ventilated with fans, and try to spend some time in an air conditioned environment to give your body a break
from the heat.

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 immediately.

Where is the baby? LOOK BEFORE YOU LOCK ! 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.
