The National Weather Service in Charleston has issued a heat
advisory... which is in effect from noon today to 6 PM EDT this
evening.

* Locations... all of southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia.

* Heat index values... up to 110 degrees due to a combination of
high temperatures ranging from 95 to 100 degrees and moderate
levels of humidity.

* Impacts... 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 the direct sun. 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.
