KARACHI: The citizens of Karachi, who have lately been braving the scorching weather, were alerted to yet another heatwave in the megapolis on Sunday.
The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) issued a heatwave alert for the megapolis, saying that "another heatwave of moderate/severe intensity will engulf Karachi and suburbs from Tuesday to Thursday."
It said the day temperatures will remain 40-44°C during this period.
The Met Office further said that sea breeze will remain cut-off and wind from northwest to north will dominate.
Try to stay indoors, and if you need to be outside don’t spend extended amounts of time without shade. Keep your skin covered against the sun.
Wear linen, cotton, silk, or other breathable fabrics. Keep your clothing loose and breezy, so you don't feel suffocated in the humid heat.
Look for a shade, find a tree.
Drinking more water is recommended.
