The entity made the decision after the fourth consecutive day with this situation, in the midst of the ninth heat wave that has produced temperature spikes in much of the center and the coast of the country.

On Thursday, the federal capital registered a value of 38 degrees Celsius, which constitutes a temperature record for the month of March, since official records began in 1906.

The SMN also declared an orange alert for several municipalities in the provinces of Buenos Aires and Entre Ríos and yellow for other areas of those two provinces, as well as those of Santa Fe, Córdoba, Santiago del Estero, San Luis and Mendoza.

Given the issuance of a red alert, the National System for Comprehensive Risk Management, which reports to the Ministry of Security, recommended hydration, eating fresh food, protecting yourself from the sun, wearing loose clothing, and paying special attention to the elderly and children.

Buenos Aires has also been affected since Thursday by the smoke coming from forest fires on islands in the Paraná river delta, where brigade members from the provinces of Entre Ríos and Buenos Aires are working to eradicate two active sources.

On the other hand, thousands of users lack electrical service due to the fire that caused the overheating of high voltage lines, and caused the disconnection of power plants, affecting 42 percent of Argentines.
