NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Heat advisories are in effect for several parishes in Southeast Louisiana.

The National Weather Service issued heat advisories for Orleans, Jefferson, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. John the Baptist, St. Tammany and Tangipahoa Parishes until 7 p.m.

According to the NWS "The combination of abundant moisture in place and temperatures rising into the mid-to-upper 90s is causing heat indices to reach dangerous levels."

Heat indices are expected to go above 108 degrees this afternoon and may do the same tomorrow as well according to the NWS.

The precautionary boil water advisory is still in effect as of 8 a.m. Saturday morning. The S&WB is currently testing water samples, according to City representatives, and will notify residents and businesses when the advisory is canceled.
