Heat wave in effect through Thursday in Southern Illinois

SOUTHERN ILLINOIS — A heat advisory remains in effect from now through 9pm on Thursday for our entire listening area, as heat index values up to 106 are expected. Hot temperatures and high humidity may lead to heat illnesses. The effects of high heat are cumulative.

This is a four- day heat event meaning that heat index values up to around 105 are expected each afternoon. Warm nighttime temperatures will allow little recovery for those who are sensitive to heat. Heat related illnesses will become more likely each day of the event. During this time, make sure you 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. 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 lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible. 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.

If you can, bring outdoor pets inside. If you can’t make sure your pets have access to shade and plenty of cool, clean drinking water.
