Police ID motorcyclist killed during Ride of the Century

Tuesday, 03 September 2013 09:40 Published in Local News

A motorcyclist who was killed over the weekend during the Ride of the Century has now been identified. 32-year-old Michael Evans was killed when his motorcycle clipped a parked police car on January Avenue near Elizabeth. St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson says a group of four riders were speeding down the street when three of them veered to the left of the unmarked car. But the motorcycle driven by Evans attempted to pass on the right-hand side when he clipped the side-view mirror of the car. The motorcycle veered out of control and struck a pole in a wooded area near January Avenue. Evans, a Harrisburg, Illinois resident, was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Firefighters responding to a call in Park Hills, Missouri got more than they bargained for when they found a marijuana growing operation in the basement. The Daily Journal newspaper in Park Hills reports that emergency crews were called to the home when the resident's mother fell asleep with a lit cigarette, catching her mattress on fire. This happened early Saturday morning. After firefighters extinguished the blaze, they searched the home and reportedly found about 20 plants, as well as lighting and watering equipment in the basement. Formal charges have not yet been filed. 

First heat-related death in St. Louis County

Friday, 30 August 2013 10:54 Published in Local News

The first heat-related death in St. Louis County has been confirmed. A 65-year-old Ferguson woman was found dead yesterday...her air conditioner was not working. In addition to the death, nine people have been treated for heat-related illnesses, and one has been hospitalized. A heat advisory remains in effect for the St. Louis area until 7:00pm on Saturday.

 

Whenever temperatures rise above 95 degrees, the Saint Louis County Department of Health recommends the following: 

 

Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing.

Spend as little time as possible in the sun and keep activity levels to a minimum.

Drink plenty of cool, non-alcoholic beverages, especially those without sugar or caffeine.

Take regular breaks in the shade or in an air-conditioned room. 

Eat light, easily-digested foods, avoiding hot, heavy, or greasy meals.

Be sure not to leave food unrefrigerated for long – food spoils rapidly in the heat.

Take care of those who might not be aware of the danger or able to react accordingly –especially young children and the elderly.  Check on your neighbors and relatives if they may be vulnerable or do not have air conditioning.

Know the signs of heat exhaustion.  If someone becomes dizzy, nauseated, or sweats heavily, find a cooler location for him or her immediately.

Know the signs of heat stroke.  Heat stroke is much more serious than heat exhaustion.  The symptoms are similar to heat exhaustion, but also include hot, flushed skin, and normally sweating stops.  If heat stroke is a possibility, call 911 immediately.  Heat stroke is life threatening!
