    * HEAT INDEX VALUES...In the mid 90s.

    * TIMING...This afternoon and Friday afternoon.

    * IMPACTS...Extreme heat can cause illness and death among at-
    risk population who cannot stay cool. The heat and humidity may
    cause heat stress during outdoor exertion or extended exposure.

    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

    A Heat Advisory is issued when the combination of heat and
    humidity is expected to make it feel like it is 95 to 99 degrees
    for two or more consecutive days, or 100 to 104 degrees for any
    length of time.

    Seniors and those with chronic health problems or mental health
    conditions are at an increased risk. Homes without air
    conditioning can be much hotter than outdoor temperatures.

    Use air conditioning to stay cool at home, or go to a place that
    has air conditioning. Check on vulnerable friends, family members
    and neighbors. To find a NYC cooling center, call 3 1 1 or visit
    http://nyc.gov/oem

    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! In cases of heat stroke call 9 1 1.
