Another blistering heat wave is coming our way. This excessive heat warning takes effect from 10:00 am Monday, August 28, to 8:00 pm Tuesday, August 29.
By News Desk
Dangerously hot conditions with high temperatures of 98 to 109 degrees are expected. Overnight low temperatures in the 70s to mid-80s in some locations will provide little relief from the heat.
Extreme heat will significantly increase the potential for heat related illnesses for anyone, especially for sensitive populations: young children, the elderly, and those working outdoors or participating in outdoor activities.
Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances.
Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside.
- Reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening.
- Wear lightweight and loose-fitting clothing.
- Plan 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.
