Statement as of 7:16 AM CDT on August 21, 2014

Expires 9:00 PM EDT on August 21, 2014


... Heat advisory in effect from noon today to 8 PM CDT this
evening...

The National Weather Service in Twin Cities/Chanhassen has issued
a heat advisory... which is in effect from noon today to 8 PM CDT
this evening.

* Temperature... highs in the lower 90s with heat indices around
100 degrees.

* Impacts... given the cool Summer thus far... these conditions may
lead to a heightened risk of heat related stress and illness...
especially for the Young and elderly... and those without air
conditioning.


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. Do not leave children or pets
left unattended in vehicles. The interior temperature of a
vehicle can reach dangerous levels in the matter of minutes.

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.
