Very Hot Weather Warning

The Very Hot Weather Warning has been issued by the Hong
Kong Observatory at 6:45 a.m. The Hong Kong Observatory is
forecasting very hot weather in Hong Kong today. The risk of
heatstroke is high.

When engaged in outdoor work or activities, drink plenty of
water and avoid over exertion. If not feeling well, take a
rest in the shade or cooler place as soon as possible.

People staying indoors without air-conditioning should keep
windows open as far as possible to ensure that there is
adequate ventilation.

Avoid prolonged exposure under sunlight. Loose clothing,
suitable hats and UV-blocking sunglasses can reduce the
chance of sunburn by solar ultraviolet radiation.

Swimmers and those taking part in outdoor activities should
use a sunscreen lotion of SPF 15 or above, and should
re-apply it frequently.

Beware of health and wellbeing of elderly or persons with
chronic medical conditions. If you know of them, call or
visit them occasionally to check if they need any
assistance.
