The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Heat Advisory for Harris County from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday. Heat index readings are expected to range from 106 to 111 degrees. The dangerous heat conditions are likely to continue through the weekend. Everyone should take precautions to avoid heat illness or exhaustion.

The Harris County Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management (HCOHSEM) urges residents to limit any time outdoors to the early morning and/or evening hours, and stay hydrated throughout the day. LOOK BEFORE YOU LOCK: always check your backseat for children or pets and check on your neighbors, especially the elderly.
What you should do:
Keep your body temperature cool to avoid heat-related illness.
- Stay in an air-conditioned building or shelter as much as possible.
- Do not rely on a fan as your primary cooling device.
- Avoid direct sunlight.
- Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing.
- Take cool showers or baths.
- Check on those most at-risk twice a day.
Because your body loses fluids through sweat, you can become dehydrated during times of extreme heat.
- Drink more water than usual.
- Do not wait until you are thirsty to drink more fluids.
- Drink from two to four cups of water every hour while working or exercising outside.
- Avoid alcohol or liquids containing high amounts of sugar.
- Remind others to drink enough water.
In addition, extreme heat for a long period may put a strain on the electric grid. To reduce strain to the grid during the peak hours of 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., it is recommended that you set your air conditioner at 78°F if possible and avoid using large appliances.
