The National Weather Service in Upton has issued a Heat Advisory,
which is in effect from 11 AM this morning to 6 PM EDT Thursday.

* Heat Index Values...In the upper 90s.

* Timing...Through Thursday Afternoon. The highest heat index
  values will occur mainly during the afternoons.

* Impacts...Extreme heat can cause illness and death among the at-
  risk population who can not stay cool.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heat Advisory is issued when the combination of heat and
humidity is expected to make it feel like it is 95 to 99 degrees
for two or more consecutive days, or 100 to 104 degrees for any
length of time.

New York City residents should call 3-1-1 to obtain "Beat the
Heat" safety tips.

Seniors and those with chronic health problems or mental health
conditions are at increased risk. Homes without air conditioning
can be much hotter than outdoors.

Use air conditioning to stay cool at home, or go to a place that
has air conditioning. Check on vulnerable friends, family members
and neighbors.

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! In cases of heat stroke call 9 1 1.
