In light of this extreme weather, it’s crucial for everyone in the Kingdom to take necessary precautions to manage the heat.

Here are some tips to stay safe and cool during the heat wave:

  1. Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated. Avoid sugary, caffeinated, or alcoholic beverages as they can lead to dehydration.
  2. Avoid Direct Sunlight: Try to stay indoors during the peak sun hours, usually between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. If you must be outside, wear light, loose-fitting clothing, a hat, and sunglasses.
  3. Use Sun Protection: Apply  sunscreen with at least SPF of 30 on all exposed skin. Reapply every two hours, or more often if you’re sweating or swimming.
  4. Stay Cool Indoors: Use fans or air conditioning to keep indoor temperatures cool, or spend time in air-conditioned public places like shopping malls or cafes.
  5. Limit Physical Activity: Reduce strenuous activities, especially during the hottest parts of the day. If you exercise, do it during the cooler hours of the morning or evening.
  6. Monitor Health: Pay attention to signs of heat-related illnesses, such as heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Symptoms include heavy sweating, weakness, dizziness, nausea, headache, and confusion. Seek medical attention immediately if you or someone else shows these symptoms.

As the region braces for this intense heat wave, staying informed and taking proactive measures can help ensure everyone’s safety and well-being.

Stay cool and take care!
