Heat Advisory

Statement as of 2:42 AM CDT on August 19, 2017

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on August 19, 2017


... Heat advisory in effect from 10 am this morning to 7 PM CDT
this evening...

The National Weather Service in Shreveport has issued a heat
advisory, which is in effect from 10 am this morning to 7 PM CDT
this evening.

* Event... high pressure across the area will allow for
temperatures to climb into the mid 90s this afternoon. Hot
temperatures combined with sufficient low-level moisture will
allow for heat index values to climb to around 105 to 108
degrees across the advisory area.

* Timing... heat index values will approach 105 degrees by late
morning and persist through the afternoon into the early
evening hours.

* Impact... precautions should be taken to prevent heat related
illnesses, including limiting outdoor work activities to the
late morning and early evening hours.

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.

   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.
