...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM NOON TO 7 PM EDT FRIDAY...

The National Weather Service in Charleston has issued a Heat
Advisory, which is in effect from noon to 7 PM EDT Friday.

* Heat Index Values...In the lower 100s due to temperatures in
  the lower 90s, and dewpoints in the lower 70s.

* Timing...Friday afternoon through Friday evening.

* Impacts...The combination of high temperatures and high humidity
  will lead to an increased risk of heat related stress and
  illnesses. The young, elderly, those without air conditioning,
  and those conducting strenuous outdoor activities will be the
  most susceptible.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are
possible. Drink plenty of fluids...stay in an air-conditioned
room...stay out of the sun...and check up on relatives and
neighbors.

   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.
