Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:34 PM EDT Aug. 18, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect until 8 PM EDT Monday...

The National Weather Service in Upton has issued a heat advisory,
which is in effect until 8 PM EDT Monday.

* Heat index values... 95-100.

* Timing... through 8 PM Monday evening.

* Impacts... extreme heat can cause illness and death among at-
risk population who cannot stay cool. The heat and humidity
may cause heat stress during outdoor exertion or extended
exposure.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory is issued when the combination of heat and
humidity is expected to make it feel like it is 95 to 99 degrees
for two or more consecutive days, or 100 to 104 degrees for any
length of time.

Seniors and those with chronic health problems or mental health
conditions are at an increased risk. Homes without air
conditioning can be much hotter than outdoor temperatures.

Use air conditioning to stay cool at home, or go to a place that
has air conditioning. Check on vulnerable friends, family members
and neighbors. To find a NYC cooling center, call 3 1 1 or visit
http://NYC.Gov/oem

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! In cases of heat stroke call 9 1 1.
