It's Hot! Take Care

According to the National Weather Service's Web site "heat is the number one weather-related killer in the United States."  When temperatures are as high as they have been lately, excessive heat advisories can be issued.  These alerts are issued mainly on the Heat Index, which is a measure of how hot it really feels when relative humidity is factored with the actual air temperature.  The current Heat Index can be found online at sites like or Weather Underground

Because of the danger excessive heat poses, it is important to not only be aware of the temperature and heat index. but also what steps to take to prevent the heat from affecting your health.  Here are some guides that can help.

Stay cool.
