Weather Alert

Heat Advisory Extended Through Tuesday

IL (AP) -- Heat advisory remains in effect until 7:00pm CDT Tuesday. Dangerous heat index values will peak between noon and 6:00pm today and Tuesday. The heat index today will range from 105 to 110 degrees in the afternoon hours with locally higher values. Tuesday afternoon, the heat index should be around 105.

Heat exhaustion and heat stroke may come on quickly with any exertion. The very young, the elderly, those without air conditioning and those participating in strenuous outdoor activities will be the most susceptible. Also car interiors will reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes. Beat the heat, check the backseat! Never leave children or pets unattended in a vehicle.
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.
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. Call 9-1-1.
A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, and stay out of the sun. And check up on relatives and neighbors.
