HeatRisk Dashboard [website]
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.)
The HeatRisk Dashboard was developed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for use by the general public. Users may enter a zip code to check heat forecast information for that location as well as protective actions to exercise in the event of rising heat levels. Data is pulled from the HeatRisk Forecast Tool, a database developed in partnership with the CDC, National Weather Service, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (available here: www.hsdl.org/c/abstract/?docid=887619).

Citing HSDL Resources

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
