As our heatwave progressed with a high of 110 degrees in Bakersfield on Tuesday, the National Weather Service in Hanford extended its excessive heat warning for the region through Friday.
Here are the warnings from the National Weather Service:
Take extra precautions, if you work or spend time outside. Shelter yourself from the hot sun if possible and schedule
strenuous physical work outside to the early morning or evening hours. Wear light colored, loose fitting clothing if possible.
Remain hydrated and drink plenty of water. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of dangerously hot temperatures will occur. Prolonged exposure to extreme heat can lead to heat exhaustion or heat stroke.
Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. Look before you lock! The
temperature inside of a car on a hot day can climb to lethal levels in a matter of minutes.
