...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 2 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO 8 PM CDT
THURSDAY...

The National Weather Service in Fort Worth has issued a Heat
Advisory, which is in effect from 2 PM this afternoon to 8 PM CDT
Thursday.

* TEMPERATURE...Between 95 and 98 Degrees.

* HEAT INDEX VALUES...Between 105 and 108 Degrees.

* IMPACTS...Heat exhaustion or stroke may set in if individuals
  and pets are not adequately cooled and/or hydrated.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heat Advisory means that afternoon heat index values are
expected to meet or exceed 105 degrees for at least two
consecutive days.

Be sure to check on persons with health problems and the
elderly, as they are the most susceptible to heat exhaustion and
heat stroke. Never leave young children or pets in an enclosed
vehicle, even for a short time, as temperatures can quickly rise
to life threatening levels.

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 911.
