Photo: Severe Heat Advisory Throughout Mexico
Mexican residents throughout most of the country are being warned to stay indoors during the day, wear hats outdoors and drink lots of water in light of extreme heat temperatures.
11 states in the country are facing temperatures over 100 degrees Fahrenheit with the southern coast facing over 112 degrees. The Health Secretary, Jose Angel Cordova, is reporting an increase in diahretic diseases as a result of spoiled meats and vegetables due to heat and the propensity of Mexicans to eat from outdoor food stalls.
Mexico City is also facing some very uncomfortable days since Thursday when the temperature was clocked at 83 degrees and all the public transportation not having air conditioning.
The country’s rain season started this month yet little to no rainfall has been seen. It is now not unusual to see a lot of social media buzz in the country urging for the Mexican Indians to start doing public rain dances so that the heat can subside.
