...EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 1 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO
7 PM CDT THIS EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Springfield has issued an
Excessive Heat Warning, which is in effect from 1 PM this
afternoon to 7 PM CDT this evening. The Heat Advisory is no
longer in effect.

* TEMPERATURE...Temperatures will warm into the middle 90s as heat
  index values will be around the 110 degree mark.

* IMPACTS...Hot and humid conditions will lead to dangerously high
  heat index values this afternoon across southeastern Kansas and
  western Missouri. Exposure to these conditions will increase
  the potential for heat related illness. Young children and the
  elderly are especially susceptible to these conditions.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot
temperatures and high humidity will combine to 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 and 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.

   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.
