EMSA has issued a heat alert for the city of Tulsa. Residents are urged to stay inside, drink lots of water and check on the elderly and those without air conditioning.

Medics have responded to seven suspected heat-related calls in the Tulsa area. That makes 212 so far for 2018.

Tulsa County is also under an ozone alert with air quality considered "unhealthy," according to the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality. That means active children and adults and people with respiratory diseases like asthma should avoid all outdoor exertion.

Everyone else should limit outdoor activities. 

Several other counties including Rogers, Wagoner, Okmulgee, Okfuskee, Creek, Pawnee, Osage and Washington, have air quality considered unhealthy for sensitive groups.
