...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 10 AM THIS MORNING TO 7 PM CDT
THIS EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Lake Charles has issued a Heat
Advisory, which is in effect from 10 AM this morning to 7 PM CDT
this evening.

* TEMPERATURE...92 to 95 degrees with dew points between 76 and
  80 degrees.

* MAX APPARENT TEMPERATURE...108 TO 110 degrees.

* IMPACTS...Prolonged exposure to the heat outdoors, in unshaded
  places, without proper hydration, and other precautionary
  actions, may result in heat related illnesses.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are
possible. 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.

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.
