...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 9 PM CDT THIS EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Tulsa has issued a Heat Advisory,
which is in effect until 9 PM CDT this evening.

* TEMPERATURE...Heat index values will be in the 105 to 108 range
  across much of east central Oklahoma and west central Arkansas
  through early evening today as a result of very high moisture
  values in the area and afternoon temperatures in the lower 90s.

* IMPACTS...The combination of hot temperatures and high
  humidity will create a dangerous situation in which heat
  illnesses are possible.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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 911.
