Weather Man Dismisses Warning On Equinox Heat Wave
The Kenya Meteorological Department has dismissed the heat wave alert message that has been circulating on social media.
The message, which has been shared widely, claims that Kenya will experience elevated temperatures for a period of 5 days.
However, the Kenya Meteorological Department’s Deputy Director Peter Ambenje has refuted the claims saying the heat is not extra ordinary.
The WhatsApp message that was shared widely also advised Kenyans, especially those living in the coastal region, to drink up to three litres of water daily to prevent dehydration, monitor their blood pressure as frequently as possible and take cold shower as frequently as possible.
