The National Weather Service in Los Angeles/Oxnard has issued an Excessive Heat Watch, which is in effect from Monday morning through Tuesday evening. * TEMPERATURES...100-106 degrees, warmest on Tuesday. Overnight lows in the upper 60s and 70s. Isolated lower 80s possible in the foothills and mountains. * IMPACTS...The very high temperatures create a dangerous situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Temperatures inside vehicles, even if the windows are partially open, can quickly rise to life-threatening levels. Never, ever, leave people or pets in enclosed vehicles, even for a short period of time. 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 light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water. 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 911.
