Heat Advisory in the Ozarks

The stifling heat is expected to be with us in the Ozarks all week.

The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory until eight tonight. Heat index readings as high as 109 are expected.

Hot temperatures and high humidity can cause heat illnesses to occur. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Take extra precaution if you work or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Wear lightweight or loose fitting clothing when possible.
