...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM NOON TODAY TO 8 PM EDT THIS
EVENING...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN CHARLESTON HAS ISSUED A HEAT
ADVISORY...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM NOON TODAY TO 8 PM EDT THIS
EVENING.

* LOCATIONS...ALL OF SOUTHEAST SOUTH CAROLINA AND SOUTHEAST GEORGIA.

* HEAT INDEX VALUES...UP TO AROUND 110 DEGREES DUE TO A
  COMBINATION OF HIGH TEMPERATURES RANGING FROM THE MID 90S ALONG
  THE IMMEDIATE COAST TO AROUND 100 FARTHER INLAND AND MODERATE
  LEVELS OF HUMIDITY.

* IMPACTS...THE COMBINED EFFECTS OF HEAT AND HUMIDITY COULD LEAD
  TO HEAT ILLNESSES IF PROPER PRECAUTIONS ARE NOT TAKEN.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

IF YOU MUST BE OUTDOORS...DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS...WEAR LIGHT
WEIGHT CLOTHING AND STAY OUT OF DIRECT SUNSHINE. IN ADDITION... KNOW
THE SIGNS OF HEAT ILLNESSES AND BE SURE TO CHECK ON THOSE WHO ARE
MOST SUSCEPTIBLE TO THE HEAT SUCH AS YOUNG CHILDREN AND THE
ELDERLY. NEVER LEAVE CHILDREN AND PETS IN A VEHICLE... ESPECIALLY
WITH THE WINDOWS ROLLED UP SINCE TEMPERATURES CAN BE MUCH HIGHER
INSIDE THE VEHICLE.

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.
