Posted on June 23, 2022
* WHAT...Temperatures in the 90s expected.

* WHERE...In Oregon, Coast Range of Northwest Oregon, Central
  Coast Range of Western Oregon, Central Willamette Valley,

  Hills, I- 5 Corridor in Cowlitz County and South Washington

* WHEN...From noon Saturday to 10 PM PDT Sunday.

* IMPACTS...Hot temperatures may cause heat illnesses to occur.
  Rivers are running cold and fast, and will continue to do so
  this weekend. Nearly every year, people die in rivers in
  southwest Washington and northwest Oregon due to cold water
  shock during the season`s first heat wave. Hot temperatures can
  make the cool water seem tempting, but river temperatures in the
  50s can easily result in cold water shock that can kill in
  minutes.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Sunday will be the hottest day, with highs
  generally in the mid to upper 90s. Highs Saturday are expected
  to be 90 to 95. Overnight temperatures are not expected to be
  overly warm. Nighttime temperatures away from cities are likely
  to fall into mid 50s to lower 60s.

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.
