OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma authorities have issued another heat alert for the Oklahoma City metro area after a series of calls related to high temperatures.

The Emergency Medical Services Authority on Monday night urged the general public to take extra precautions when outside. The National Weather Service recorded temperatures as high as 101 degrees.

At least six people suffering symptoms from the heat called 911 Monday. Heat alerts are issued after five calls.

This is the fourth heat alert of the summer. The authority says it will remain in effect until the “summer heat drops significantly.”

The authority advises taking frequent breaks from outdoor activity and drinking plenty of fluids. Warning signs of heat exhaustion include heavy sweating, tiredness, weakness and dizziness.
