Most of Texoma Under Heat Advisory Until 9pm Tuesday

Posted:

TEXOMA--Earlier this afternoon, the heat index reached 106 in Durant. Despite the heat, more Texomans are playing it safe and avoiding the emergency room.

The National Weather Service issues a heat advisory when temperatures passed 105 degrees, but a worker at an emergency room says fewer people have been checking in for heat conditions now--compared to the beginning of the summer--perhaps because many are staying hydrated. 

Seniors and children do not sweat like adults, and when suffering from  heat will exhibit clammy, moist skin. When suffering from a heat stroke, seek medical attention immediately.
