TVA Ready for Heat
AP Friday July 21, 2017

TVA says the average service area temperature this week has reached 94 degrees, and it's only going to get hotter.
The utility company says it is seeing its highest energy use since the summer of 2012, and it's ready to handle the high demands.
TVA Spokesman Travis Brickey said the average usage heading into the weekend is nearly 30,000 megawatts for 9 million people in the seven-state area TVA covers.
TVA says it's ready, though they're amping up operations to handle the heat.

 


Heat Advisory
WSMV Friday July 21, 2017

A heat advisory is in effect for most of Middle Tennessee until 7 p.m. Friday.
Dangerously hot and humid weather will bring temperatures to the mid-to-upper 90s with heat index values ranging from 100 to 106.
The hottest temperatures are expected to affect the areas along and west of Interstate 65.
The National Weather Service says the heat advisory could be expanded farther east and could also be extended through Saturday.
The very young, the elderly, those without air-conditioning and those who work outside will be the most at risk for heat-related illnesses.
Everyone is advised to stay hydrated, stay out of the sun and to check on relatives and neighbors who are at risk.
If you see someone who could be suffering from a heat-related illness, call 911 for help.

 


Tennessee Unemployment
AP Friday July 21, 2017

Gov. Bill Haslam says Tennessee's unemployment rate for June was the lowest in recorded state history.
At a news conference Thursday, Haslam said the 3.6 percent figure is best the state has performed since at least 1976, when the statistic started being recorded.
June's preliminary seasonally adjusted rate surpasses the previous low mark of 3.7 percent in March 2000. The last time Tennessee registered below 4 percent was February 2001.
Haslam's office says the improvement occurred as the national preliminary rate increased by one-tenth of a percentage point to 4.4 percent over the same month.
Haslam pointed to Tennessee's low taxes, business environment, high quality of life and workforce preparation.
