...EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT
SUNDAY...

* TEMPERATURE...Highs in the lower to middle 90s daily, with heat
  indices reaching from around 105 to near 115 degrees.

* IMPACTS...Several days of heat indices of around 105 degrees
  could have a cumulative impact on some individuals, especially
  those who spend a prolonged amount of time outdoors. The most
  susceptible are the very young, the elderly, and those without
  air conditioning, and anyone conducting strenuous outdoor
  activities.

Also, car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of
minutes. Never leave pets, children or the elderly unattended in
parked vehicles. The extended period of high heat and humidity
will worsen the effects of heat stress.

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 9 1 1.

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.
