A heat advisory means that afternoon heat index values are
expected to meet or exceed 105 degrees while overnight low
temperatures will not fall below the upper 70s. 
Be sure to check on persons with health problems and the
elderly...as they are the most susceptible to heat exhaustion and
heat stroke. Never leave Young children or pets in an enclosed
vehicle...even for a short time...as temperatures can quickly
rise to life threatening levels. 
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.

WarningSum:...Air Pollution Watch Level Orange...

Warning Message:Air pollution watch - level Orange - for Dallas-Fort Worth.
The Texas commission on environmental quality (tceq) has issued a
level Orange air pollution watch for the Dallas-Fort Worth area
for Sunday, August 28, 2011.
Atmospheric conditions are expected to be favorable for producing
high levels of ozone air pollution in the Dallas-Fort Worth area
on Sunday. Ozone levels could reach the level Orange "unhealthy
for sensitive groups" category.
Elevated concentrations of ozone can act as a lung irritant.
Individuals with chronic lung disease, such as asthma and
emphysema, as well as the elderly and Young children, are
particularly sensitive to ozone and should attempt to avoid
exposure.  To avoid exposure, minimize exertion outdoors during
the mid-day to early evening hours or stay indoors in an air-
conditioned room during this time.
