An excessive heat watch means that a prolonged period of hot
temperatures and high humidity is expected. This combination will
create a dangerous situation in which heat related illnesses are
possible. Drink plenty of fluids...stay in an air-conditioned
environment if possible...stay out of the sun...and check on
elderly relatives and neighbors. Keep pets in a cool location
with plenty of available water.
