The heat wave that started in Europe is expected to be felt in Turkey as of Friday. Temperatures in the Aegean are expected to reach 45 degrees. With the arrival of the summer months, the number of forest fires has increased considerably all over the world. It is stated that at least 1000 people died in France, Spain and Portugal due to health problems caused by both fires and extreme heat.
Thermometers Saw 47 Degrees in Portugal
While the thermometers showed 47 degrees in Portugal, forest fires started to show their effect in Western Europe. While thermometers in England showed temperatures over 40 degrees, it was stated that the hottest days in the country’s history were experienced. While experts warn that even healthy people in the country ‘do not go out’, meltdowns on some roads in the country are expected to cause disruptions in transportation.
The Met Office’s chief meteorologist, Paul Davies, described the situation in Europe as “extraordinary” and added that the rise in temperature was “fully consistent” with climate change. Davies told Sky News that the weather charts he saw today were ‘astonishing’ and unlike anything he had observed in his 30-year career.
