EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING NOW IN EFFECT UNTIL 9 PM SATURDAY

Posted on July 27, 2022
* WHAT...High temperatures 97F to 102F.
* WHERE...Central Willamette Valley.
* WHEN...Until 9 PM PDT Saturday.

* IMPACTS...Extreme heat will significantly increase the
  potential for heat related illnesses, particularly for those
  working or participating in outdoor activities and for those
  that do not have access to air conditioning.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...There is a 40% chance that high
  temperatures will begin to drop into the low 90s or lower by
  Saturday. Overnight lows in the mid to upper 60s in the Salem
  Metro and higher hills of the region will provide little relief
  for those without air conditioning. Overnight temperatures are
  expected to drop below 70F between 3 AM and 7 AM most nights. Low
  temperatures in more rural low lying areas will drop into the
  low 60s most nights between now and Saturday.


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.
