Update: Excessive Heat Warning Continues Through Sunday Evening

The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning in effect from Wednesday, July 18, at 1 p.m. until 7 p.m. Sunday evening.  High temperatures ranging from 103-108 are possible each afternoon. The very hot temperatures will increase risk of heat related illnesses.

An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a dangerous situation in which heat illnesses are likely. Be sure to check on persons with health problems and the elderly, as they are the most susceptible to heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Never leave young children or pets in an enclosed vehicle, even for a short time, as temperatures can quickly rise to life threatening levels. 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 911.

Areas affected include Hopkins, Delta, Hunt, Rains, Lamar, Van Zandt, Henderson
