National Weather Service Issues Heat Advisory

Monday, July 18th, 2011 at 7:38 am

Heat advisories have been issued by the National Weather Service today, some of which affect portions of our listening area. From the National Weather Service:

THE COMBINATION OF HOT TEMPERATURES AND HIGH HUMIDITY WILL COMBINE TO CREATE A DANGEROUS SITUATION IN WHICH HEAT ILLNESSES ARE LIKELY. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER…STAY IN AN AIR-CONDITIONED ROOM…AND STAY OUT OF THE SUN.

Officials are asking residents to CHECK UP ON RELATIVES AND NEIGHBORS, ESPECIALLY PERSONS WHO ARE ROUGHLY AGE 65 OR OLDER AS THEY ARE EXCEPTIONALLY SUSCEPTIBLE TO HEAT RELATED ILLNESS AND INJURY.

Hot weather is expected throughout the week.
