When in Manila, better prepare for the hottest days yet, ‘coz according to the Department of Energy, temperatures may go past 37 degress Celsius on May 21 and 22, 2014! WTF!!!!
Here are the details which we got from Rappler.com :
MANILA, Philippines – Get ready for the hottest days of the year, expected to be on Wednesday, May 21, and Thursday, May 22.
On these days, temperatures may go past 37 degrees Celsius, a marked rise from the summer season temperatures observed since April which hovered between 35 degrees Celsius and 37 degrees Celsius in different parts of the country.
The spike in temperatures is expected to drive demand for power, Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Carlos Jericho Petilla said on Monday, May 19.
Adding to the pressure on energy is the World Economic Forum (WEF) on East Asia to be held in Metro Manila from May 21 to 23.
“The hottest days are on 21st and 22nd and that is when WEF will be held then that is so we will manage it the best way we can, with or without WEF,” Petilla told reporters.
The highest temperature in Metro Manila ever recorded was 38.5 degrees Celsius on May 14, 1987. The hottest day ever recorded for the entire country was on May 11, 1969 when Tuguegarao City in Cagayan experienced heat at 42.2 degrees Celsius.
What are you gonna do to beat the Manila heat?
