According to the Red Cross, several heat waves are raging worldwide, leading to many deaths. They ask Norwegians on holidays to be careful.

Among other things, there are strong heat waves in several countries in Europe. The Red Cross warns that volunteers have stepped up their efforts, especially in cities where dehydration and heat stroke can hit hard on hot days.

Norwegians must be careful when it comes to heat, Torben Bjørke-Henriksen in the Red Cross stated.

“In Norway, traditionally, the cold is the problem, but Norwegians have to follow basic recommendations for dealing with heat as well. You can’t go out in the middle of the day. You need to avoid physical activity, stay in the shade, and drink a lot of water,” Bjørke-Henriksen said.

The most important thing is to drink enough water, stay in the shade, and take care of children and the elderly.
