...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM NOON TODAY TO 7 PM CDT THIS
EVENING...

* HEAT INDEX READINGS...around 105 degrees.

* TIMING...this afternoon.

* LOCATION...mainly around and west of I-65.

* IMPACTS...The heat and humidity will result in an increased risk
  for heat-related illnesses. The very young, the elderly, those
  without air conditioning, and those participating in strenuous
  outdoor activities will be the most susceptible. Also, car
  interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.
  Remember to check the backseat! The effects will worsen with
  each successive day of the heat and humidity.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are
possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned
room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and
neighbors.

   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.
