Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Watch
Issued: 7:36 PM EDT Jul. 17, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat watch remains in effect from Saturday afternoon
through Saturday evening...

* heat index values... up to 109 due to temperatures in the upper
90s, and dewpoints in the mid 70s.

* Timing... 12 PM Saturday through 10 PM.

* Impacts... extreme heat can cause illness and death among at-
risk population who cannot stay cool. The excessive heat may
quickly cause heat stress or heat stroke.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

An excessive heat watch means that the combination of heat and
humidity could create a dangerous situation in which heat
illnesses are possible. 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.

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

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 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.
