TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- The Republican National Convention and the peak of hurricane season collide in Tampa, Fla., and organizers say they have a plan if a violent storm should hit.

What they are even more concerned about is the heat and humidity. They worry that the tens of thousands of convention goers won't understand that danger and some could wind up in the hospital or worse.

The convention will be held from Aug. 27 to 30. That's squarely during the swampy, steamy summertime when tourists usually avoid Florida.

The Health Department plans to include flyers warning about the heat in each delegate's welcome package.
