The advisory stated the high heat indices during the day were expected to lead to an increased risk for heat-related illnesses for those active outdoors or with limited access to air conditioning.

Residents of the counties affected by the advisory should wear light-weight and loose-fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water. Those who work outside are advised to take regular breaks in the shade or in air-conditioned areas.
