春分现象 Equinox phenomenon?

Someone sent me this message and I shared it around. :)

Safety message:

Dear all, Due to the Equinox phenomenon that will affect Malaysia/Singapore in the next 5days. Pls stay indoors especially from 12pm-3pm daily. The temperature will fluctuate till 40 degrees Celsius. This can easily cause dehydration and sun stroke. (Ps: this phenomena is due to the sun directly positioned above the equator line. )

Please keep everyone inclusive of yourself hydrated. 
Everyone should be consuming about 3 litres of fluid everyday. 
Monitor everyone's blood pressure as frequent as possible. 
Many may get heat stroke.
Cold showers as frequent as possible. 
Reduce meat increase fruits & veg.

Heat wave is no joke! 
Place a new unused candle outside home area or exposed area. 
If candle can melt, its in dangerous level.

Always place a pail or 2 water half filled in living room & each in every room to keep moist temperature down.
Its first experience in Malaysia/Singapore..Heat stroke has no indicative symptoms. Once fainted, its seriously dangerous as organ failure kicks in.

A recipient of this message from me, replied that this is not true as per NEA.



However, whether the temperature hit 40 degrees Celsius or not, it is prudent to beware of the immense heat these days. :)

The precautionary advice of the message is useful anyway! 

Recently, we see days with temperature hovering around 34-35 degrees Celsius and real suffocating.

Thanks to the rains most days, we have some respite.

I had an experience of temperatures reaching 43 degree Celsius some years back in Perth, Australia.
Power failed and ice-cream parlours, supermarkets, and various businesses were adversely affected. I heard the energy minister was sacked for this.

Lets all stay healthy! 

Cheers all
