Primary and secondary schools in Quezon, the most populous part of the city, were ordered to shut while schools in other areas were given the option by local officials to shift to remote learning.

Some schools shortened class hours to avoid the hottest part of the day.

A heat index of 42-51C can cause “heat cramps and heat exhaustion” with heat stroke “probable with continued exposure”, the weather forecaster said in an advisory.
