Weather Alert

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.

Local VA Hospital Under Review

Updated: Saturday, June 21 2014, 05:35 PM CDT

DANVILLE -- Investigators with the Department of Veterans Affairs visited the VA Illiana Healthcare Facility in Danville and the one in Peoria in May. And now they are both due for another review.

Officals from the hospital say they don't know why or when the review may happen, but it will be in the near future.

Officials from the hospital also tell us that the review this past May found that some of the staff needed to receive additional training and education.

The official we spoke with says that they are looking forward to a review, adding that they have nothing to hide.
