THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Indian meteorological department has issued a yellow alert in some regions of Palakkad and Kozhikode districts, in the wake of the heatwave scare. Palakkad district is likely to experience heat up to 40 degrees Celsius while Kollam and Kozhikode districts may see 39 degrees Celsius in the coming days.

The Meteorological Center has predicted that the temperature will rise to 38 degrees Celsius in Thrissur district, 37 degrees Celsius in Alappuzha, Kottayam, Pathanamthitta and Kannur districts and 36 degrees Celsius in Thiruvananthapuram, Ernakulam, Malappuram and Kasaragod districts.

Public and non-governmental organizations should be cautious in case of an intensifying heatwave. In this condition, the chances of sunstroke and sunburn are high. Sunstroke can even lead to death.

  • Avoid going out during the day as much as possible.

  • Completely stop all outdoor work, sports and other activities that expose the body to direct sunlight.

  • Drink plenty of water.

At the same time, as part of the black sea phenomenon, the Meteorological Department has informed that there is a possibility of a sea storm due to high waves along the Kerala coast, south Tamil Nadu coast.
