PLEASE remember generator safety — We lost far too many lives in the wake of Hurricane Laura due to generator or carbon monoxide related deaths.
Keep your generator 20 feet from your home! Do NOT bring it inside. Remeber the three 20s!
HEAT ADVISORY — Issued Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and now once again Friday with the heat index values between 98-106. This is now expired, but we’ll likely have another in your forecast for Saturday. Drink lots of water. Stay in the shade. Take breaks in between picking up storm debris.
It’s very easy to get heat exhaustion & become dehydrated without being able to cool your body down in the air conditioning.
Since Ida, we’ve had a flurry of activity with Julian, Kate, and now Larry forming.
Larry will become a powerful hurricane & dance out to sea, Bermuda should keep an eye on it. A tropical wave in the Caribbean has a 30% chance of development in the next 3-5 days as moisture moves into the Gulf of Mexico. Next name on the list is Mindy. We’ll let you know if rain chances and wind potential will increase locally as a result.
