The National Weather Service in Shreveport has issued a Heat
Advisory, which is in effect from noon to 7 PM CDT Thursday.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When
possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is

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.
