Heat Wave Continues in Kerala: Yellow Alert Issued in 12 Districts, Palakkad Braces for High Temperatures

The scorching heatwave gripping Kerala shows no signs of relenting, with the central meteorological department issuing warnings for elevated temperatures across the state. Palakkad is expected to bear the brunt with temperatures soaring to 41 degrees Celsius, while other districts like Kollam, Pathanamthitta, Kottayam, Thrissur, Kozhikode, and Kannur will also experience sweltering conditions, reaching up to 38 degrees Celsius. Alappuzha, Ernakulam, and Kasaragod will see maximum temperatures of 37 degrees Celsius, with Thiruvananthapuram and Malappuram at 36 degrees Celsius. A yellow alert has been issued for all districts except Idukki and Wayanad until Saturday, urging residents to take precautions.

To combat the heatwave, authorities advise the public to take necessary precautions, including avoiding direct sunlight between 11 am to 3 pm, staying hydrated with lukewarm water, wearing loose, light-colored cotton clothing, and consuming fruits and vegetables. Additionally, summer rains may offer temporary relief, with thunderstorms expected in the state on Friday and Saturday. However, the overall rainfall this season has been below average, highlighting the need for continued vigilance and preparedness against the scorching temperatures.
