Statement as of 3:52 AM CDT on July 24, 2014

Expires 9:00 PM EDT on July 26, 2014


... Excessive heat watch in effect from Friday afternoon through
Saturday evening...

The National Weather Service in Tulsa has issued an excessive heat
watch... which is in effect from Friday afternoon through Saturday
evening...

For the following counties...

* in Oklahoma... Pawnee... Tulsa and Osage.

Hazardous weather...
* a ridge of high pressure aloft will spread over Oklahoma and
   Arkansas Friday on thru the weekend. As a result... high
   temperatures will climb to near the century mark across
   northeast Oklahoma Friday and Saturday. Combining this heat
   with high dewpoints will yield afternoon heat indices in the
   105 to 110 range. In addition... overnight lows in the Tulsa
   Metro and points to the northwest will remain very warm Friday
   night due to persistent south to southwest winds... and thus
   will not provide much relief from the heat.

Impacts...
* the combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will
   combine to create a dangerous situation in which heat illnesses
   are possible.

Definition...
* an excessive heat watch means that a prolonged period of hot
   temperatures is possible.

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 911.

* Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio... commercial radio or television
   for the latest information concerning this weather event.

Air Quality Alert

Statement as of 2:35 PM CDT on July 23, 2014

Expires 10:00 PM EDT on July 24, 2014


... Ozone alert Thursday...

The Oklahoma department of environmental quality has issued an ozone
alert for Thursday for the Tulsa metropolitan area. An ozone alert
means that conditions are favorable for the buildup of ozone
near the ground to an unhealthy level.

When winds are light... the vapors from fuels such as gasoline...
exhaust from engines... and air pollutants from Industrial activities
remain trapped near the ground. If sunshine is abundant when these
air pollutants build up... a chemical process is triggered that
results in the development of ozone near the ground during the
afternoon and evening hours.

While ozone in the upper levels of the atmosphere is beneficial in
screening the suns radiation... it is harmful near the ground. Ozone
can bother those with respiratory problems and can damage vegetation.

A few simple measures can be taken to help keep the ozone levels from
becoming unhealthy. During ozone alert days:

Postpone any unnecessary driving... and car pool if possible. If
you do drive to work... turn the air conditioner in your car off
during your morning commute. You can also cut down on extra
driving by bringing your lunch to work. If you must refuel your
vehicle... do it in the evening after the sun GOES down or postpone
your fueling to another day.

Postpone running the lawn Mower and gas trimmer... the exhaust from
these small engines contributes a significant amount of pollution
to the air. Industrial facilities should reduce pollution emissions
as much as possible on ozone alert days.

These preventative measures... performed throughout the Tulsa Metro
area... can have a tremendous effect in reducing the pollutants that
contribute to ozone problems.

For further information... contact the Oklahoma department of
environmental quality at (918) 293-1600 or the Indian nations
Council of governments /incog/ at (918) 584-7526. Additional
information can also be found at www.Ozonealert.Com...
including current ozone levels around the Tulsa area.
