The National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) has issued a warning about a heatwave starting Tuesday, expected to impact several regions severely.

The NDMA’s advisory indicates that intense heatwave conditions will hit Punjab and Sindh from Thursday until the 27th of this month. The advisory highlights that temperatures could reach dangerously high levels, posing significant health risks.

The NDMA advises the public to take preventive measures against the heatwave’s potential dangers. The public should limit exposure to the sun, stay hydrated, and wear light, breathable clothing. Staying indoors during the hottest hours of the day is also recommended to avoid heat-related illnesses like heatstroke and dehydration.

Farmers in the affected areas should adjust their farming practices to cope with the harsh conditions. Changes might include modifying irrigation times and providing extra shade for crops to shield them from the intense heat.

Similarly, livestock owners should ensure their animals have enough water and shade and consider rescheduling feeding times to cooler periods of the day.

The NDMA’s advisory serves to inform and prepare individuals and communities for the expected heatwave, urging them to take active measures to reduce health risks and protect their livelihoods.
