News

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — It’s going to be hot today. Exceptionally hot. And while — of course — Global Warming doesn’t exist (’cause this is a normal early summer after a normal winter), heed the following warning from the National Weather Service:

URGENT – WEATHER MESSAGE 
National Weather Service Miami FL

situation in which heat illnesses are possible. 

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS… 

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
