Met Dept warns of hot temperatures

In a statement yesterday the Meteorological Services Department (MSD) said nights were becoming warmer while higher temperatures of around 30 degrees Celsius were being experienced during the day due to low humidity. They said that the high temperatures are associated with different health and environmental problems.

The statement reads:

These high temperature episodes are associated with various health and environmental issues such as breeding of mosquitoes and flies, heat exhaustion and heat strokes. The dryness may cause dry coughs. Coupled with this, we are entering the period of maximum stratospheric ozone depletion. As such direct exposure to sunlight should be minimised. Wearing of sunglasses and hats, especially for children during outdoor activities is extremely important.
