Yellow alert increased to Orange level for heatwave throughout Canaries

The Met Office (AEMET) has increased the Yellow Alert for heatwave to Orange Alert. The Orange level had previously been applied only to Gran Canaria, but will now apply to Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, La Palma, and La Gomera as well. Temperatures are expected to reach 39º in Gran Canaria, 38º in Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, and La Palma, and 37º in La Gomera, with mid-altitude most affected, as currently, though as I’ve posted previously, we have exceeded that in Vera de Erques even under the previous Yellow Alert and it is currently 42º. Also as posted previously, the Fire Alert Plan remains in force with all mountain activities prohibited.  Canarias24Horas
