...EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON FRIDAY TO 8 PM EDT
SATURDAY...

The National Weather Service in Charleston has issued an
Excessive Heat Warning, which is in effect from noon Friday to
8 PM EDT Saturday. The Excessive Heat Watch is no longer in
effect.

* HEAT INDEX VALUES...105 to 110, due to temperatures in the mid
  90s, and dewpoints in the mid 70s.

* TIMING...Highest heat indices occurring Friday afternoon into
  early evening, and again Saturday afternoon into early evening.
  The intervening night Friday night will be stiflingly warm and
  muggy.

* IMPACTS...The heat and humidity may cause heat stress during
  outdoor exertion or extended exposure.

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.

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.

Drink plenty of fluids, 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.
