Heat waves
Heat waves are common summer occurrences in our service area. During the most severe hot weather, power supplies might be stretched to their limits and we might ask customers to use electricity as prudently as possible. But your main concern during a severe hot spell should be to take proper health precautions.
Be prepared and know what to do
  • Have basic emergency supplies on hand, including extra bottles of water.
  • Consider the impact of heat on your activities, especially during the hottest part of the day.
  • Avoid unnecessary power use; turn off non-essential lights, appliances and equipment.
  • Drink plenty of water; dehydration is a primary health hazard during severe hot weather.
  • If air conditioning is unavailable, go to a cooler location such as a basement.
  • Check on seniors or those living alone who may have difficulty in hot conditions; make sure they, too, drink plenty of water and stay as cool as possible.
Stay informed
Be aware of heat advisories that may be issued through the local media.

v d ... e A heat wave is a prolonged period of excessively hot weather, which may be accompanied by high humidity . There is no universal definition of a heat wave; the term is relative to the usual weather in the area. Temperatures that people from a hotter climate consider normal can be termed a heat wave in a cooler area if they are outside the normal climate pattern for that area. The term is applied both to routine weather variations and to extraordinary spells of heat which may occur only once a century. Severe heat waves have caused catastrophic crop failures, thousands of deaths from hyperthermia , and widespread power outages due to increased use of air conditioning.

Extreme Heat
Heat kills by pushing the human body beyond its limits. In extreme heat and high humidity, evaporation is slowed and the body must work extra hard to maintain a normal temperature. Most heat disorders occur because the victim has been overexposed to heat or has over-exercised for his or her age and physical condition. Older adults, young children, and those who are sick or overweight are more likely to succumb to extreme heat. Conditions that can induce heat-related illnesses include stagnant atmospheric conditions and poor air quality. Consequently, people living in urban areas may be at greater risk from the effects of a prolonged heat wave than those living in rural areas. Also, asphalt and concrete store heat longer and gradually release heat at night, which can produce higher nighttime temperatures known as the "urban heat island effect." How can I protect myself from extreme heat?

    Heat Waves
    Warming oceans’ waves are speeding up, forecasting big changes in the weather.
    By Harvey Leifert Schematic of a typical oceanic planetary wave traveling westward with horizontal scale of about 500 kilometers and with vertical amplitude at the sea surface of about 10 centimeters. Such waves have a major effect on the large-scale ocean circulation and thus on weather and climate. Paulo Cipollini, Southampton Oceanography Centre Oceanic planetary waves , just an inch or two high at the surface but thousands of feet deep and hundreds of miles apart, sweep slowly but steadily across Earth’s oceans: a surfer who caught one in Acapulco would take four years to wash up on a Chinese beach. The waves are speeding up, though, thanks to global warming, and as they do, they could affect weather patterns around the world. The waves are constantly generated by surface winds and pushed westward by the Earth’s eastward rotation. They advance by between four and ten inches a second in the tropics, more slowly toward the poles. But that’s about 10 percent faster than oceanic planetary waves traveled at the start of the Industrial Revolution 200 years ago, according to John C. Fyfe

Excessive Heat Events Guidebook
You will need Adobe Reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA's PDF page to learn more. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has produced the Excessive Heat Events Guidebook (PDF, 60 pp., 1,796 KB) with assistance from Federal, state and local and academic partners. Designed to help community officials, emergency managers, meteorologists, and others plan for and respond to excessive heat events, the guidebook highlights best practices that have been employed to save lives during excessive heat events in different urban areas and provides a menu of options that officials can use to respond to these events in their communities. The Guidebook was developed with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Municipal officials in both the U.S. and Canada provided useful information that can be used to help the public cope with excessive heat.
