MACON, Ga. (AP) — The National Weather Service is expecting a triple digit heat index in much of middle and east Georgia.

Officials say a heat advisory is in effect from noon to 8 p.m. Thursday covering an area south of a line stretching from Columbus to Warrenton.

Forecasters say the heat index is expected to be about 105, raising potential for heat stroke and heat exhaustion.

Officials say residents in areas covered by the advisory should drink plenty of fluids, stay in air-conditioned areas and stay outside of direct sunshine.

Forecasters say the elderly, the very young and people with heart conditions are most at risk in extreme heat.

Forecasters say strenuous outdoor activities should be rescheduled to early morning or evening hours .
