The National Weather Service in Kansas City/Pleasant Hill has
issued a Heat Advisory, which is in effect from 1 PM to 8 PM CDT
Tuesday.
* TEMPERATURE...High temperatures in the mid 90s with heat indices

* IMPACTS...The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
could quickly cause heat stress or heat stroke if precautions
are not taken. The very young, the elderly, those without air

activities will be the most susceptible. Also, car interiors can
reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

Information:
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.
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 9 1 1.
