The National Weather Service in Los Angeles/Oxnard has issued an

through Thursday evening.
* HIGH TEMPERATURES...Coastal areas 85-98. Valleys 98-108.

* IMPACTS...Increased potential for serious heat-related
illnesses, especially for the young and elderly, those
performing outdoor activities, as well as those without access

Never, ever, leave people or pets in enclosed vehicles, even for
a short period of time.
Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When
