Heat Advisory for Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana

IL, TN, IN, KT (AP) -- A heat advisory remains in effect until 7:00pm CDT Saturday.
Temperatures will continue their heat up through the 90s each afternoon over the next several afternoons as high pressure aloft builds into and across the nation's midsection.
These temperatures will combine with rather muggy conditions to produce afternoon heat index values from 100 to 105 several days in a row. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will create a 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 lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.
Precautionary/preparedness actions: A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors. Make sure outside pets have plenty of water.

Attorney General Rules On Deputy Shooting

Updated: Wednesday, July 2 2014, 03:33 PM CDT
VERMILION COUNTY -- An update now on a story we first brought you a few months ago where a vermilion county deputy shot and injured a person at the scene of an altercation.  The Vermilion County State's Attorney was asked to look over the case and after careful review he concluded that the deputy did act properly.
    A little history now on why he made that decision. The US Supreme Court says any review of an officer's actions must be made from the officer's point of view including risks and dangers he or she faced during the event.
    Using that perspective the county''s attorney general believes that necessary levels of force were used to resolve the situation. Charges are still pending against the shooting victim, Caleb Emory, for his involvement in the incident.
