Peshawarites bearing brunt of severe hot, humid weather
PESHAWAR: The residents of the provincial metropolis were bearing the brunt of extreme hot and humid wave as the people were enduring complete sun-drenched days leaving them profusely sweating and their clothing soaked. According to the Met Office, the humidity ratio remained at 68 percent in the air the other day with a minimum temperature of 38 degree Celsius but the weather still felt unbearable with high mugginess causing heavy sweating. For the last three days an intense surge has been witnessed in hot and humid weather conditions forcing most of the vulnerable people to stay safe at home to fend off sunstroke. The school going children was the most vulnerable segment as they have been seen waiting for school vans with heavy bags hanging from their shoulders under the hot sun. – APP
