Scorching heat poses the risks of fire

Update: 26-02-2024 | 13:04:47

On February 25, the weather forecast bulletin from the Southern Hydro-Meteorological Station indicated that widespread heatwaves have occurred in the entire region of the Southeastern region and partially in the Western region in recent days. The highest temperature in the Southeastern region on February 24 fluctuated between 35-37 degrees Celsius, with 37.2 degrees Celsius recorded in the So Sao area of Binh Duong province. The lowest relative humidity ranged from 30-55%.

It is forecast for the next 24 to 48 hours that widespread heatwave would continue with intense heat in the Southeast provinces and expand to the provinces of the West. By February 27, the heat would temporarily ease as the maximum temperature in the Southeast region might range from 35-37 degrees Celsius, with some areas exceeding 37 degrees Celsius. The West region would have areas of above 35 degrees Celsius. The relative humidity would be low, ranging from 30-55%. The duration of the heatwave during the day is expected to be from 12:00 to 16:00.

Due to the influence of intense sunlight and the declining humidity in the air, a higher risk of combustion, explosions, and fires in residential areas and forests is expected. Additionally, intense sunlight can also cause dehydration, exhaustion, and heat stroke due to heat shock on human when exposed to high temperatures for extended periods.
