Czech Republic hit by heat wave

Breaking Earth News
Czech Republic

A heat wave coming all the way from Africa arrived in the Czech Republic at the weekend, with Prague seeing a new record temperature of 35.8 degrees Celsius on Sunday. But Czechs are now bracing themselves for even hotter weather: forecasters say Monday could be the hottest day ever recorded in this country, with temperatures of up to 39 degrees Celsius expected.

At lunchtime on Monday, temperatures were already climbing up fast.
Health officials have warned people, especially children and elderly as well as those suffering from heart or respiration problems, against going outside in the mid-day sun. Jirina Ernestova, spokesperson for Prague ambulance service, confirms that paramedics have been twice as busy as usual since the arrival of the heat-wave.
