Another heat advisory today

The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for today from 1 - 7 p.m. Dangerous heat is expected across the Kansas City area with peak afternoon heat indices from 100 to 105 degrees. Some important tips to keep in mind.

  • Do not use a fan as your primary source of cooling. If no AC, visit a public building like a community center,.
  • Check on your neighbors, friends and relatives at least twice a day (morning and night).
  • Never leave children or pets in closed vehicles: In minutes, temps inside a car can reach over 140 degrees and can kill
  •  If you have to work outside or in a no AC workplace, take frequent breaks, rest in the shade and drink plenty of water.
  • Avoid too much sunshine, and postpone outdoor activities and games.

If you need a place to cool off today, feel free to visit one of our Johnson County Library branches. Here is a link to the locations. Remember that the Central Resource Library (9875 W. 87th Street in Overland Park) is undergoing renovations to that branch has limited services.
