Olongapo Hits 40 degrees midday in Olongapo City today. Nobody was alarmed and thank God, so far I heard of nobody hurt. The election was just over and people flock the streets of Olongapo anyway, thinking this was just another hot day. PAGASA was right a month ago when they forecasted a much hotter May season. I would suggest patients to have sunblock on at least twice a day depnding on the SPF they are using if they plan to be directly under the sun. Also, always bring water and keep cool. 2 more notches in the temp and I’ll be complaining to the city health office why there was no warning. 40C can already excacerbate many fevers and can cause cardiac arrest or stroke in susceptible individuals.
