…EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM CDT
SATURDAY…

* TEMPERATURE…Afternoon highs in the mid to upper 90s and
nighttime lows around 80 degrees.

* HEAT INDICES…Peak heat indices in the 105 to 110 degree
range.

* IMPACTS…Oppressive heat and humidity combined with ample
sunshine will lead to hazardous conditions, particularly for
the elderly and those with pre-existing health conditions.
Stifling heat is likely to linger well into the evening hours
with very little nighttime relief from the heat. This will
exacerbate the potential health impacts during this intense
heat wave. Residents of the City of Chicago can call 3…1…
1… to request well being checks for elderly friends or
family members, or for information on finding the nearest
cooling center.

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.
