The Fukuoka District Meteorological Observatory and the Ministry of the Environment have issued a heat stroke alert and are urging people to take further measures against heat stroke. The alert urges people to avoid going outside as much as possible, to keep cool indoors by using air conditioners, and to take measures such as assigning a doctor or nurse to exercise, or to do so in a cool room. The maximum daytime temperature is expected to be 36 degrees in Fukuoka City, 35 degrees in Yahatanishi-ku, Kitakyushu City, 34 degrees in Iizuka City, and 37 degrees in Kurume City. Source: NHK
