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.

The Illinios School for the Deaf to Host Parent, Infant Institute

Updated: Friday, June 13 2014, 04:30 PM CDT
This week, the Illinois School for the Deaf in Jacksonville is hosting the Parent-Infant Institute.  It's designed for parents with children who are hearing impaired.

Throughout the week 32 families are living on campus and attending several informative workshops; learning how to better care for their child.

In 2002, Infant Hearing Screenings became mandatory in Illinois.  Since then, nearly 500 babies have been diagnosed with loss each year.

Programs like these are important as Coordinators of the Parent-Infant Institute say, the earlier the problem is detected, the more effective  intervention programs like these will be.
