* IMPACTS...Prolonged outdoor activity without taking
precautions, such as drinking plenty of non-alcoholic liquids,
and taking frequent breaks from the heat in air conditioned

A Heat Advisory means that heat indices of 110 degrees or higher
are expected over most of the area for at least two hours.
Prolonged exposure combined with physical activity could cause
heat exhaustion and even heat stroke. The elderly, the very
young, the sick, and people with heart conditions are most at
risk in extreme heat.
Reduce, eliminate, or reschedule strenuous activities to the
coolest times of the day. If you must be outside, reduce your
activities, and take frequent breaks preferably in an air
conditioned area. Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing.
Drink plenty of non-alcoholic liquids, preferably water, even if
you do not feel thirsty.
