...HEAT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT THIS EVENING...

* HEAT INDEX VALUES...Around 95.

* TIMING...Today.

* IMPACTS...Extreme heat can cause illness and death among at-
  risk population who cannot stay cool. The heat and humidity
  may cause heat stress during outdoor exertion or extended
  exposure.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heat Advisory is issued when the combination of heat and
humidity is expected to make it feel like it is 95 to 99 degrees
for two or more consecutive days, or 100 to 104 degrees for any
length of time.

Seniors and those with chronic health problems or mental health
conditions are at an increased risk. Homes without air
conditioning can be much hotter than outdoor temperatures.

Use air conditioning to stay cool at home, or go to a place that
has air conditioning. Check on vulnerable friends, family members
and neighbors. To find a NYC cooling center, call 3 1 1 or visit
http://nyc.gov/oem

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! In cases of heat stroke call 9 1 1.

...AIR QUALITY ALERT IN EFFECT FROM 11 AM TO 11 PM EDT THURSDAY...

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has
issued an Air Quality Health Advisory for the following counties...

Richmond...Kings...Queens...New York...Bronx...
Westchester...Rockland...Nassau...Suffolk.


from 11 AM to 11 PM EDT Thursday.

Air quality levels in outdoor air are predicted to be greater than
an Air Quality Index value of 100 for the pollutant of Ground Level
Ozone . The Air Quality Index...or AQI...was created as an easy way
to correlate levels of different pollutants to one scale. The higher
the AQI value...the greater the health concern.

When pollution levels are elevated...the New York State Department
of Health recommends that individuals consider limiting strenuous
outdoor physical activity to reduce the risk of adverse health
effects. People who may be especially sensitive to the effects of
elevated levels of pollutants include the very young...and those
with preexisting respiratory problems such as asthma or heart
disease. Those with symptoms should consider consulting their
personal physician.

A toll free air quality hotline has been established so New York
residents can stay informed on the air quality situation. The toll
free number is 1 800 5 3 5, 1 3 4 5.
