The Philippines is burning in the heat. The citizens of the country say that the heat has become so terrible that it is difficult to breathe.

Meanwhile, the country’s government has suspended classes in schools in some areas and warned people not to stay indoors for too long as an unprecedented heatwave has gripped public life.

The hottest and driest weather in the Philippines is usually March, April and May. However, this year due to El Nino style weather, the situation has taken a dire shape. The temperature in the country reached a record 47 degrees Celsius on Tuesday.

60-year-old Erlin Tumaron works at a seaside resort in Cavite province, south of the country’s capital, Manila. In an interview with the French news agency AFP, he said, “It’s so hot here, you can’t breathe.”

Temperatures are expected to reach “dangerous” levels of 42 degrees Celsius or higher in at least 30 cities and municipalities in the country on Wednesday, the Philippine Meteorological Agency said. The company measures how the temperature feels by considering the humidity in the heat.
