Entire listening area
With heat indices ranging from 105 plus in the forecast starting tomorrow, an Excessive Heat Warning is in place for Thursday afternoon through Sunday evening.
This includes the entire 95.3 WIKI Listening area.
The combination of high humidity and temperatures will make conditions dangerous for children, the elderly and those with respiratory problems.
Heat stroke, heat exhaustion and other heat related illnesses will be possible, especially if you spend a significant amount of time outdoors, or are involved in any strenuous outdoor activity.
Make preparations for dangerous conditions in which heat exhaustion or heat stroke are possible.
Plan to spend more time in air conditioned or well-ventilated places. If possible, reschedule strenuous outdoor activities to early morning or evening. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing 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.
