...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 11 AM TO 9 PM CDT SATURDAY...

The National Weather Service in Norman has issued a Heat
Advisory, which is in effect from 11 AM to 9 PM CDT Saturday.

* TEMPERATURE...High temperatures will be in the upper 90s in
  central and south central Oklahoma to 100 to 106 across western
  and north central Oklahoma and western north Texas. Combined
  with high humidity, heat index values will range from 105 to 112
  degrees during the afternoon and early evening hours.

* IMPACTS...Heat exhaustion and heat stroke are possible for those
  individuals working or playing outside.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Be sure to check on persons with health problems and the
elderly...as they are the most susceptible to heat exhaustion and
heat stroke. Never leave young children or pets in an enclosed
vehicle...even for a short time...as temperatures can quickly
rise to life threatening levels.

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.
