Thursday, July 18, 2019
The National Weather Service has expanded the weather advisory and there is now an Excessive Heat Warning in effect from Friday, 12:00pm until Sunday, 10:00pm.
- HEAT INDEX VALUES...100 to 105 on Friday afternoon, 105 to 110 on Saturday afternoon, and 100 to 105 on Sunday afternoon.
- TIMING...The most dangerous of the heat and humidity will occur from mid-afternoon into the early evening each day. However, overnight minimum temperatures will only drop into the mid to upper 70s, providing little relief from daytime heat.
- IMPACTS...The excessive heat and humidity may cause heat stress or heat stroke. The most susceptible individuals are the elderly and those with pre-existing health issues.
In the case of a power outage, reporting outages helps the crew pinpoint damage and restore power more quickly. Call JCP&L at 888-544-4877, or report via text or on-line. We remind you to assume that all downed wires and live and dangerous. Do not touch or drive over them and report to Marlboro Police immediately.
