With rising temperatures in Western Europe and the heat set to soar above 40 degrees Celsius in the coming weeks, Southern Europe is already battling the effects of more blistering summer heat, which meteorologists say is a result of the world’s changing climate.
So far, more than 230 people have died from heat-related effects in Spain and 238 in Portugal, according to local media reports.
Here are five countries in Europe which are feeling the heat at the moment.
Almost 240 new blazes were reported in two days, most northeast of Porto. Lousã in the center of Portugal hit a record 46.3 degrees on Wednesday, 13 July 2022.
Some 25 separate blazes are raging across vast swathes of Spain, and temperatures have soared above 40 degrees in some places for several days already. Fires have already engulfed around 14,000 hectares of land across the country.
The Po River, Italy’s longest, has hit record low water levels after months without heavy rainfall; it is the vital source of water used for drinking, irrigation and hydroelectric power in the country.
Three major fires are still active and almost 11,000 hectares of land have been destroyed in two days, where a southern wind known as the mistral is fueling the spread.
With temperatures set to hit a record 40 degrees, trains are cancelled with Network Rail asking customers to “only travel if absolutely necessary.
