Issued: 12:19 PM CDT Jul. 25, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect until 8 PM CDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Kansas City/Pleasant Hill has
issued a heat advisory, which is in effect until 8 PM CDT this
evening.

* Temperature... middle 90s

* heat index... 103 to 107 degrees

* impacts... many areas within and around the Kansas City Metro
have been without power for several days since the storms did
damage to the power infrastructure on July 22. The lack of
cooling centers and personal cooling units will make conditions
through the area today and perhaps tomorrow more oppressive
than these conditions would normally make.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are
possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned
room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and
neighbors.
