The Central Weather Bureau says it will be a hot weekend ahead with forecasts of 36-38 degrees in 18 municipalities.


Temperatures have soared to 35 degrees in Chiayi in recent days, and the fire department has sent two scooter drivers that suffered some kind of heat-related accident to the hospital.

Chen Chih-ming, Chiayi Firefighter: “The driver was near Honoki Village when they crashed into the refuge island. When we arrived on the scene, he was sitting on the refuge island.”

Kao Wei-feng, Emergency Medicine Doctor, Taipei Hospital: “People often develop symptoms before the onset of a heat stroke. For example, they may experience dry mouth, nausea, headache or dizziness. Their body temperature will often be between 37 and 40 degrees.”

According to statistics, 444 cases of heat illness were reported in the first three weeks of this month. Only 423 cases were reported in the entire month of July last year. At 12:01 a.m., temperatures in Taipei were 30.6 degrees and 30.3 degrees in Tainan's Yongkang. The Central Weather Bureau says the hot, muggy weather could send temperatures up to the 33-37 degree range and up to 38 degrees in Taipei, Yilan, Hualien and the East Rift Valley.

Lin Bing-yu, Meteorological Section Chief, CWB: “The black lines represent high pressure systems over Taiwan. So, the heat is not going to dissipate and Taiwan will be hotter.”

The bureau says temperatures could hit 36-38 degrees in 18 municipalities over the weekend. Hsinchu City is not among the 18. The apparent temperature in Taipei, meanwhile, could rise even further to 42-43 degrees on the 25th.

 

 

 

從監視器畫面可以看到,熱心民眾將跌倒受傷的騎士扶到一旁,等待救護人員做簡單的傷口清潔包紮。嘉義市這兩天中午氣溫都飆高到35度以上,消防局已先後協助了2名疑似因熱傷害自撞路倒騎士就醫。

嘉義市消防局後湖分隊員陳志銘表示:「民眾在忠孝靠近檜意森活村的附近,因為天氣太熱導致自撞安全島,我們到達現場的時候,他坐在安全島上面。」

北醫附醫急診科醫生高偉峰說明:「在中暑之前常常會有熱衰竭的症狀,譬如他有口乾舌燥噁心,想吐頭痛頭暈,他的溫度通常都是37到40度。」

根據衛福部統計,7月1日至7月21日已接獲444人次熱傷害通報,已超越去年7月一整月的423人次。因為天氣炎熱,從氣象局資料可看見,台北測站22日0時1分,出現30.6度高溫,同時間台南市永康測站30.3度。氣象局表示,白天各地依舊是晴到多雲、炎熱的天氣,各地高溫可以來到33至37度,尤其大台北、宜蘭地區及花蓮縱谷有38度極端高溫發生的機率。

氣象局預報課長林秉煜指出:「黑色曲線代表高壓罩在台灣上空,所以台灣的熱不容易跑開,台灣就相對是比較熱的情形。」

氣象局預測,23日至下周一太平洋高壓勢力依舊偏強,除了新竹市以外,18縣市高溫可達36至38度。尤其台北市下周一體感高溫,更可達42到43度,民眾外出務必做好防曬工作並多補充水分,慎防熱傷害。
