Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Warning
Issued: 3:20 PM CDT Aug. 20, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat warning in effect until 9 PM CDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Omaha/valley has issued an
excessive heat warning, which is in effect until 9 PM CDT this
evening.

* Heat index values... 109 to 117 in urban areas, and 105 to 112
in rural areas.

* Timing... the hottest conditions are expected between 4 and 7
PM. Heat index values should fall below 105 after 9 PM.

* Impacts... dangerously high temperatures and humidity could
quickly cause heat stress or heat stroke if precautions are
not taken.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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 so call 911.

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.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during
warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
temperatures in a matter of minutes.
