Weatherman on Friday urged people, especially vulnerable sections, to avoid exposure to heat and drink a lot of fluids, saying that the heat wave will continue for next five days in Jammu and Kashmir.

“Heat wave over plains of Jammu & Kashmir Divisions is likely to continue during next 5 days,” a meteorological department official told.

He said hot and dry weather was also likely over hilly districts during these five days.

“Avoid heat exposure & drink a lot of fluid and water especially vulnerable people (Elderly people, infants and children).”
