...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 1 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO 7 PM CDT
THIS EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Omaha/Valley has issued a Heat
Advisory, which is in effect from 1 PM this afternoon to 7 PM CDT
this evening.

* TEMPERATURE...High temperatures this afternoon will reach into
  the lower to mid 90s. Afternoon heat indices should reach 103 to
  108 degrees.

* IMPACTS... Outdoor workers are at risk for heat exhaustion or
  heat stroke this afternoon. Children and pets are at risk if
  left alone in unattended vehicles. Prolonged exposure to heat
  and humidity may lead to heat-related illness if precautions are
  not taken.

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 so call 911.
