[ARCHIVED] Heat Advisory for Malibu Area Thursday, Aug 9 - Friday, Aug 10

Heat Warning Cooling Centers

The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for Southern California that will be in effect Thursday, August 9 through Friday, August 10. Daytime high temperatures are expected to be in the 80s and 90s in coastal areas and over 100 in valleys and inland. City Hall and Michael Landon Center at Bluffs Park will be available to serve as emergency cooling centers, where those suffering from heat-related illness can get cold water and ice packs and sit indoors.


Impacts

There is an increased potential for serious heat-related illnesses, especially for the young and elderly, those performing outdoor activities, and those without access to air conditioning. There is also an increased potential for power outages.


Precautionary/Preparedness Actions

• Do not ever leave people or pets in enclosed vehicles, even for a short period of time.
• 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 lightweight and loose-fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.
• Check on elderly friends, family, and neighbors, particularly those that live alone, to ensure their health and safety during long periods of excessive heat.
