These recent advisories fall under the “extreme caution” category, indicating that the combination of high temperature and humidity poses a significant risk of heat-related illnesses.

With this, the state weather bureau advises the public to take extra precautions to prevent heat-related health issues, such as heat exhaustion or heatstroke.

These include staying hydrated, avoiding strenuous outdoor activities during the hottest parts of the day, and seeking shade or air conditioning when possible.
