...EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM CDT THIS
EVENING...

* TEMPERATURES...High temperatures ranging from 105 to 110 are
  expected Monday.

* HEAT INDICES...Heat index values may exceed 110 degrees Monday
  afternoon.

* IMPACTS...Very hot conditions will increase the risk of heat
  related illnesses.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of
extremely hot conditions will occur. This is a dangerous
situation in which heat illnesses are likely.

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.

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.
