Heat index in Olongapo seen to reach near 'danger level' anew


OLONGAPO CITY —  Residents in this city were cautioned once more against the impact of rising temperatures as the heat index in the city was forecast to reach near the “danger level.”

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said the city was expected to experience a maximum heat index of 41 degrees Celsius on Friday, April 12.


The heat index measures the degree of uneasiness felt by an average person due to the temperature and humidity, Pagasa said.
