* HEAT INDEX VALUES...Around 108 degrees this afternoon.

* IMPACTS...The heat and humidity may cause heat stress during

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

The heat index is a measure of how hot it feels when the effect
of humidity combines with the temperature, and a Heat Advisory is
issued when the heat index reaches 108 degrees or higher. High
heat index values can create dangerously hot conditions where
individuals may become critically exhausted if outdoors. Drink
plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioning if possible, remain
out of the sun, and check on relatives and neighbors who may be
sensitive to heat related illnesses. Anyone overcome by heat
should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an
emergency, call 911.
