Hot weather to continue scorching northern and central Việt Nam

HÀ NỘI — Extreme heat has put northern-central provinces from Thanh Hóa to Quảng Trị at risk of forest fires.

According to the National Centre for Hydro-Metreologogical Forecasting, hot weather is set to scorch northern and northern-central provinces this week with temperatures from  三 五 to  三 八 degree Celsius.

The Red River Delta and central provinces are forecast to swelter in up to  四0-degree heat along with low humidity of  三0 to  五0 per cent, posing threats of forest fires.

The extreme heat is predicted to last for the next  一0 days.

Up to four heatwaves have been forecast to hit the north in the first half of July, while central provinces are forecast to continue suffering drought.

The average rainfall in these regions will drop by  一 五 to  三0 per cent compared to the same period last year, according to the National Centre for Hydro-Metreologogical Forecasting.

Meanwhile, downpours are forecast in the northwestern mountainous area, south-central area and Central Highlands.

The south’s total rainfall will be  一 五 to  三0 per cent higher than previous years’ average.

Protect workers’ health

Hà Nội has suffered severe hot weather with temperatures exceeding  四0 degrees Celsius.

To avoid severe heat, many local firms have adjusted working hours to protect employees’ health.

Hà Nội Drainage Company starts the morning shift earlier, from  五. 三0am, while allowing workers to start the afternoon shift later at  三pm.

The company has also set up makeshift shelters for workers to rest as well as mobilised a medic force to promptly deal with any cases of sunstroke.

The firm has also provided each of its  二,000 workers with vitamin C tablets and  三kg of sugar per month from May to August.

“The company’s support encourages us to keep up doing our job of cleaning streets, even on scorching days,” said employee Bùi Đắc Trí.

Hà Nội Urban Environment Company (URENCO) has mobilised water trucks to clean and cool down the streets. The city's road cleaning budget in  二0 二0 is VNĐ 一 一 四 billion (US$ 四. 九 million) from the local budget.

The company said they were designing new bucket hats to help hundreds of cleaners stay cool.

Besides personal protective equipment, each URENCO worker also receives  一0kg of sugar.

The city authorities have warned companies, especially those whose employees work outside, to implement protection measures to ensure employees’ health as well as maintain performance. — VNS
