...EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM CDT THIS EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Lubbock has issued an Excessive
Heat Warning, which is in effect until 8 PM CDT this evening. The
Heat Advisory is no longer in effect.

* TEMPERATURE...Exceeding 110 degrees

* IMPACTS...Very 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...

An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously high heat indices will occur or are already occurring.
Hot temperatures will create a dangerous situation in which heat
illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-
conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives
and neighbors.

Young children, the elderly or pets should never be left
unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially
true during warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach
lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

To reduce risk limit 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.
