****EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING****

...EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 1 PM WEDNESDAY TO 8 PM
CDT SATURDAY...

The National Weather Service in Kansas City/Pleasant Hill has
issued an Excessive Heat Warning, which is in effect from 1 PM
Wednesday to 8 PM CDT Saturday. The Excessive Heat Watch is no
longer in effect.

* TEMPERATURE...High temperatures will be in the upper 90s to
around 100 degrees with night time lows in the upper 70s to
around 80 degrees. Heat index values will reach 105 to 110
degrees each afternoon.

* IMPACTS...Heat illnesses will be likely for those spending
prolonged time outside or time indoors in non-air conditioned
locations. The prolonged heat could be especially dangerous for
those most susceptible including young children and the
elderly.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.

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. Drink plenty of
fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and
check up on relatives and neighbors.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during
warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
temperatures in a matter of minutes.
