Heat Advisory in Puglia

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

Puglia’s civil protection authorities are alerting visitors and residents that a severe-heat warning is in effect in the region for the next few days. Temperatures are expected to be close to 100 degrees Fahrenheit, which is four to six degrees above normal for this time of year. An area of high pressure from Africa is to blame.
The Regional Councillor for Civil Protection, Fabiano Amati, told La Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno that people are urged to avoid going outdoors during the hottest time of day, protect themselves from the heat of the sun, drink a lot of fluids, eat fruit or light meals, avoid alcohol and caffeine, and wear light clothes and hats if you must go outside.
