Pagasa: Take caution to avoid heat exhaustion as temperature in PH rising
MANILA, Philippines — The state weather bureau on Tuesday urged the public to be more cautious as temperatures are seen to rise all over the country.
“Kapansin-pansin po na tumataas ang ating temperatura kaya’t pinapag-ingat po natin ang ‘yung mga kababayan natin na lalabas ng katanghalian,” according to Samuel Duran, weather specialist of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).
(The rise of temperature is noticeable which is why we urge the public to take caution when going outside especially at noon.)
“Iwasan po ang direktang sikat ng araw sa atin, dahil possible po tayong makaranas ng heat exhaustion o heat cramps,” Duran added.
(Let’s avoid direct sunlight exposure because we could possibly experience heat exhaustion and heat cramps.)
