An Excessive Heat Warning remains in effect until 7 AM CDT

* TEMPERATURES...Highs will reach the mid 90s today, with heat
  index values of 105 to 110. The heat index will be running in

* IMPACTS...Heat illnesses will be possible with prolonged
  outdoor exposure to the heat. The elderly, children, and those
  on certain medications are especially at risk for heat


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. 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.
