The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory for Chatham, Effingham, Bulloch, Candler, Evans, Bryan, Inland Liberty, Inland McIntosh, Hampton, Jasper, and Beaufort Counties until 8pm tonight.
Even if your county isn’t listed or highlighted in orange above, you still need to practice heat safety. Be sure to drink plenty of water, wear light, loose fitting clothing, and take frequent breaks in the shade or air-conditioning. Check on those without air-conditioning too.
NEVER leave kids or pets unattended or in a locked car. LOOK BEFORE YOU LOCK. Sunlight gets absorbed into the car and can’t escape, causing temperatures to continue to rise inside.
Be sure to know the symptoms of heat related illnesses.
Highs will stay near-record breaking heat through the start of the work week.
