More than 70 councils on maximum alert

More than 70 councils, including eight in the Algarve, have today been placed on maximum alert due to the risk of the outbreak of fires.

The vast majority of other areas in the country are on the second highest level due to the prevailing weather conditions.


The national Civil Protection Agency has meanwhile also issued advisories to residents via text messages and email to warn of hot temperatures which are said to persist for the coming days.
