Canarian Government activates forest fire Alert Plan for duration of heatwave yellow alert

The Canarian Government has activated its Alert Plan throughout the archipelago as a result of the current very high temperatures and the high risk of forest fire which they represent. The yellow alert for heatwave and gusts to 61 km per hour had already been extended to Sunday, as posted below 23 July, but the Alert Plan means that all activities are now prohibited in mountain areas for the weekend. There will therefore be no access to the recreational areas in the forestal zone, no walking in forest track areas, no camping, nor hunting. Fires had already been banned as of 21 July, posted HERE.

Temperatures today are expected to reach 34º or more, higher on the south and south east slopes at mid-altitude, with a north-easterly moderate to strong wind. In addition to the Alert Plan, the Cabildo once again requested the public to stay away from the mountains during this yellow alert.  El DiaCanarias24Horas
