Severe Weather Alerts

 

The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning from 2PM Thursday, July 18th thru 8PM Saturday, July 20th. 
 
Heat Index Values around 100 to 110 degrees are expected over the next 3 days 
 
Heatstroke, heat exhaustion, and other heat-related illnesses will be possible, especially if you spend a significant amount of time outdoors, or are involved in any strenuous outdoor activity. The cumulative impacts of heat on the human body can be significant when consecutive days of excessive heat occur. The prolonged heat will be most dangerous for young children & the elderly. Car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in minutes. Direct sun on pets & other animals will accentuate chances for heat illness
 
Wear lightweight & loose-fitting clothing and drink plenty of water. If possible, spend more time in air-conditioned or well-ventilated places. Reschedule strenuous outdoor activities to early morning or evening. Friends, relatives or neighbors should check on the elderly and people with chronic ailments, who are usually the first to suffer from heat-related illness. Double-check your vehicle to make sure no children or animals are still inside.  Make sure pets and other animals have a cool environment with water available. 
 
To reduce risk during outdoor work the Occupational Safety & Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air-conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool & shaded location. Heatstroke is an emergency, call 911.
