...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 11 AM THIS MORNING TO 7 PM CDT
THIS EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Memphis has issued a Heat
Advisory, which is in effect from 11 AM this morning to 7 PM CDT
this evening.

* HEAT INDEX READINGS...105 to 109 degrees.

* TIMING...11 AM to 7 PM CDT today.

* IMPACTS...The heat and humidity will result in an increased
  risk for heat-related illnesses. The very young, the elderly,
  those without air conditioning, and those participating in
  strenuous outdoor activities will be the most susceptible.
  Also, car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter
  of minutes. Remember to check the backseat! The effects will
  worsen with each successive day of the heat and humidity.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are
possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned
room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and
neighbors.

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.
