The temperature could rise to 42 degree Celsius, a weather advisory issued by the PMD reads. Winds are likely to blow from northeast/east especially on May 16 and 17.

  • Wear loose fitting and lightweight clothing
  • Wear sunscreen and stay in the shade
  • Drink plenty of fluids
  • Cover your head (wear a scarf or cap)
  • Use lip balm and eye drops to make sure your lips and eyes don’t get too dry

  • Rapid, shallow breathing
  • Behavioral changes such as confusion, disorientation, or staggering
