Heat Advisory issued Wednesday, June 22 at 3:34 AM EDT until Wednesday, June 22 at 6:00 PM EDT by National Weather Service Buffalo

Heat index values in the upper 90s expected inland from the Lake Erie shoreline in Erie and Chautauqua counties from 11 a.m. this morning to 6 p.m. EDT this evening. Hot temperatures and high humidity may cause heat illnesses to occur.

Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles
under any circumstances.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When possible reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat
stroke. Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible. To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent
rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location.

Heat stroke is an emergency! Call 9 1 1.


For all on-campus emergencies (police, fire, medical) contact University Police instead of 911!
