Dangerously hot temperatures with heat index values reaching or

Excessive Heat Warning is in effect as a result, and precautions
should be taken to avoid heat-related illnesses. As much as
possible, limit outdoor activities to the early morning or early
evening. Drink plenty of cool water, take frequent breaks in the
shade, and exercise caution while out in the sun for even short
periods of time. Wear lightweight, loose-fit, and light-colored
clothing. Remember to check on those most susceptible to heat-
related illness including the elderly, young children, and pets by
making sure adequate air conditioning is available.
