    On Tuesday, the temperature stood at a point less than Wednesday’s scale i.e. at 47.8 degrees breaking the record of 60 years of summer temperature in the city.

    Ahead of nautapa on Wednesday, the fire spewing sun escalated the temperature further to new high, adding to the summer woes of the citizens.

    Experts have cautioned the citizens to stay indoors during afternoon and finish off the routine chores in the morning itself. Before stepping out, experts say, cover the face and ears with white cotton cloth to prevent heat stroke. They suggest avoiding stepping out in the sun unless too necessary.
