Watches & Warnings

Excessive Heat Warning
Issued: 9:23 PM EDT Jul. 18, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat warning remains in effect from 11 am Friday to
8 PM EDT Saturday...

* areas affected: southeastern Virginia... including the
Tidewater area and northeast North Carolina.

* Hazards: dangerous heat indices.

* Maximum forecast heat index values: around 110 Friday
afternoon and 110 to 115 Saturday afternoon.

* Timing: 11 am Friday through 8 PM Saturday for the excessive
heat warning. Highest heat indices will be Friday afternoon and
again Saturday afternoon.

* Impacts: prolonged exposure or any strenuous activity may lead
to heat related illnesses that require immediate medical
attention.

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.
