Heat Alert for Hungary Extended by Ministry

MTI-Hungary Today 2021.06.24.

The human resources ministry has extended a “red code” heat alert for the country, expected to be in force until 8pm on Friday.

The ministry said extending the heat alert was justified because in line with the national weather service’s forecast, average daily temperatures will exceed 27 degrees Celsius on both Thursday and Friday.
