Issued: 3:26 PM CDT Jul. 20, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat warning remains in effect until 7 PM CDT
Sunday...

* temperature... maximum afternoon heat index values around 105
degrees are expected again on Sunday.

* Impacts... the dangerous heat and humidity could quickly cause
heat stress or heat stroke if precautions are not taken. The
very Young, the elderly, those without air conditioning, and
those participating in strenuous outdoor activities are the
most susceptible. The cumulative effects will worsen with each
successive day of the heat and humidity. Also, car interiors
can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.

Never leave pets, children, or the elderly unattended in parked
vehicles.

Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded
location. Call 9 1 1 for anyone experiencing symptoms of heat
stroke.
