A heatwave alert in most of North India amidst extreme heat conditions that are to follow for another five days.   

As North India grapples with an intense heatwave, authorities have issued a travel advisory for the region, urging residents and visitors to take necessary precautions. The heatwave, which has led to temperatures soaring above 45°C (113°F) in many areas, is affecting major states including Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, and parts of Madhya Pradesh and Bihar.

Severe Heatwave in North India

A warning has been issued by The India Meteorological Department (IMD) about the severe heat wave that is going to persist for another five days. So far the highest temperatures were recorded in Rajasthan, Churu recorded a high of 47.4 degrees Celsius, Phalodi 47.8 degrees, and Jaisalmer 47.2 degrees. Meanwhile, maximum temperatures reached 46.6 degrees in Guna, Madhya Pradesh, 45 degrees in Orai, Uttar Pradesh, 45.9 degrees in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, and 45.4 degrees each in Bathinda, Punjab and Haryana's Sirsa.

The Met Office has issued a 'red' warning for Punjab, Rajasthan, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi, and western Uttar Pradesh, highlighting the serious health risks such as heat exhaustion, heat stroke, dehydration, and exacerbation of chronic illnesses. Vulnerable groups, including the elderly, children, and those with pre-existing health conditions, are particularly at risk.

As per reports, the unremitting heat is straining power grids and depleting water sources, leading to drought-like conditions in several parts of the country. In the middle of this grave situation, travelers are being advised to remain cautious and prioritize health and safety during this period of extreme heat in North India. By staying informed and taking necessary precautions, the risks associated with heat waves can be significantly reduced.
