The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory for the Curry County Coast.

WHAT

Temperatures up to 101 expected, with overnight lows as warm as 70.

WHERE

Portions of the Curry County Coast, generally a mile or more inland, except for the Brookings area where hot temperatures could go to the coast.

WHEN

Until 11 p.m. Tuesday.

IMPACTS

The combination of warm overnight temperatures, hot daytime temperatures, and dry conditions will make it difficult to stay hydrated and cool. The potential for heat related illnesses will be significantly higher, especially for those working outside and for those who lack access to adequate cooling resources.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS

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.
