...EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM CDT THIS
EVENING...

* TEMPERATURE...Maximum afternoon heat index values around 105
  degrees are expected today.

* IMPACTS...The dangerous heat and humidity could quickly cause
  heat stress or heat stroke if precautions are not taken. The
  very young, the elderly, those without air conditioning, and
  those participating in strenuous outdoor activities are the
  most susceptible. Also, car interiors can reach lethal
  temperatures in a matter of minutes.

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.

Never leave pets, children, or the elderly unattended in parked
vehicles.

Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded
location. Call 9 1 1 for anyone experiencing symptoms of heat
stroke.
