Parts of Bengaluru saw light showers on Friday and Saturday after almost five months. However, a few parts of the tech capital are yet to see any rain and unprecedented temperatures are being recorded. The rainfall did not even cross 1 mm, said the report further.

The people of Bengaluru eagerly wait for a long relief from the unusual Bengaluru temperature. Karnataka’s Health and Family Welfare Department already issued a public health advisory earlier for vulnerable sections of people. The government asked people to be extra cautious as the temperatures will remain the same for the next few days.

The department has also asked people to stay hydrated and consume liquids to escape dehydration. Vulnerable people like infants, pregnant women, people with mental and physical issues and older people are asked to be extra cautious in such unusual temperatures. It is also advised that their heads be kept covered from direct sunlight and that oral rehydration solutions (ORS) be used.
