The National Weather Service is advising caution to West Alabama residents due to extreme temperatures.  July is here and that means the threat of triple digit “feels like” temps.

You can take a number of precautions to prevent heat exhaustion and other heat-related illnesses. When temperatures climb, remember to:

  • Wear loosefitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing.Excess, dark or tight clothing holds in heat and doesn’t let your body cool properly because it inhibits sweat evaporation.
  • Avoid sunburn. If you’re going to be outdoors, wear a lightweight, wide-brimmed hat to protect yourself from the sun, and apply sunscreen to any exposed skin. Did you know, having a sunburn reduces your body’s ability to rid itself of heat.
  • Seek a cooler place. Being in an air-conditioned building, even for just a few hours, is one of the best ways to prevent heat exhaustion. If your home doesn’t have an air conditioner, consider spending time at a library or shopping mall. At the very least, find a well-shaded spot. Fans alone aren’t adequate to counter high heat and humidity in West Alabama in July.
  • Drink plenty of fluids. Staying hydrated will help your body sweat and maintain a normal body temperature. Avoid alcoholic beverages.Water from a water bottle is being poured out into a pool of water
