Mexico Declares Emergency for Heat Wave

MEXICO CITY – A heat wave in Mexico that has increased temperatures to 50 C (122 F) in many areas has led authorities to declare a state of emergency, the country’s National Weather Service (SMN) said Thursday.

According to the SMN, temperatures could rise to 50 C in the northern state of Sinaloa, the western state of Michoacan and the central state of Hidalgo, while temperatures in the rest of the country will exceed 30 C (113 F).

The SMN recommended residents to stay alert to announcements made by the National System of Civil Protection and by state and municipal authorities, as well as to take preventative measures such as staying hydrated and avoid excessive exposure to the sun.

Civil Protection declared a state of emergency in numerous municipalities throughout the country, allowing the use of federal funds to help states and local authorities assist residents during the heat wave.
