Amber Alert for Kent as heatwave set to last 5 more days
Monday 23rd July 2018
“STAY out of the sun” urges the Met Office as the current heatwave is set to continue until Friday as Kent has been put on Amber Alert and temperatures are not set to fall below 28C during the next five days.
A tweet early this morning from the Met Office twitter account states: “It's another hot and #sunny day for southern England, where #UV levels will be high or very high, but mostly moderate to high elsewhere”
With these scorching temperatures the report is urging people to drink plenty of cold fluids, avoid being out in the sun between 11am – 3pm as the sun is at its strongest, wearing sunscreen or covering up, and also look out for elderly residents who may be on their own and require assistants in this heat.
