14/05/2012 Lanzarote (KMC) - Lanzarote is currently on orange alert due to the high temperatures experienced over the weekend. The island saw temperatures just below 40 degrees, and several people found themselves in hospital after suffering from heat stroke in Teguise.

The current heat wave is expected to last until mid-week, before temperatures drop slightly to below 30 degrees on Thursday.

The Dirección General de Seguridad and the Emergencias del Gobierno de Canarias have provided advice to people to keep themselves safe during this spell of hot weather. This includes keeping doors and windows closed and to avoid going outside if suffering from chronic respiratory diseases. The Gobierno canario also encouraged visitors and residents to make sure they have their usual medication, drink plenty of fluids and avoid dry environments. It is also recommended to avoid any severe physical exercise for as long as these weather conditions continue and to go to the doctor straight away if feeling unwell. In addition the government also urged drivers to remain cautious on the roads as the high temperatures also cause low visibility.
