PAGASA said heat cramps and heat exhaustion are likely in areas experiencing a danger level heat index, which is from 42 to 51°C. Heat stroke is also possible with continued exposure.

The public was advised to stay hydrated, limit outdoor activity, and wear fresh clothes to avoid heat-related illnesses.  —Jiselle Anne Casucian/VBL, GMA Integrated News
