This may sound weird,but I’m drinking hot coffee right now,which i always do when its this kind of weather-it makes you sweat,which is really good in balancing your temperature.
We had this kind of heat all the time in Vietnam and I was engaged in prety strenuous labor most of the time(aircraft maintenance)so it was important to keep hydrated and sweat.
We had heat casualties all the time from airmen being non-acclimated to the conditions.And these were young,physically fit people.
Inside an aircraft revetment,made of 20 foot corrugated steel walls filled with sand and blacktop surface(NO shade)the temps probably hit 130 degrees-I never really checked,but it was within reason given the ambient temps outside were over a hundred during the day and not much lower at night.
