Excessive heat warning remains in effect
An excessive heat warning remains in effect from the National Weather Service until 9 p.m. this evening. They are warning of high temperatures in some areas today that could exceed 115-degrees. The NWS warns that extreme heat will significantly increase the potential for heat-related illnesses, particularly for those working or participating in outdoor activities. They advise the public to 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. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heatstroke. Wear lightweight and loose-fitting clothing when possible.
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.
