...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 1 PM TO 8 PM CDT SATURDAY...

The National Weather Service in Lubbock has issued a Heat
Advisory, which is in effect from 1 PM to 8 PM CDT Saturday.

* TEMPERATURE...Exceeding 105 degrees

* IMPACTS...High risk of heat stroke or other heat-related illness
  for those without air-conditioning or those outdoors for any
  extended period.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heat Advisory means that hot heat indices are expected. The
combination of heat 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.
