Morris County has been placed under a Heat Advisory beginning Tuesday, August 28th a 12:00 PM through Wednesday, August 29th at 8:00 PM.

Temperatures will reach a high of 90 today with a heat index up to 96 degrees. Tuesday’s temperatures will reach a high around 93 with a heat index up to 100-105 degrees. Wednesday will reach a high in the middle 90’s with a heat index of 100-105 degrees. The heat wave is expected to continue into Thursday with temperatures in the lower 90’s and a heat index reaching into the triple digits.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heat Advisory means that a period of excessively hot humid

weather is expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high

humidity will create a situation in which there is an increased

risk for heat related health issues. Drink plenty of fluids and

stay in an air-conditioned environment, if possible.

Be sure to:

Check on elderly relatives and neighbors.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. If

possible, reschedule strenuous activities to the early morning or

late evening hours. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion

and heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing and

drink plenty of water.

To reduce your risk while working outdoors, the Occupational

Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent

rest breaks in a shaded or air conditioned environment.

Anyone overcome by the heat should be moved to a cool shaded location.

Heat stroke is an emergency...call 9 1 1.
