EXTREME Record Breaking Heat- India, Pakistan

Global Rumblings:

Northern Phalodi wilted as the mercury reached a new high, equivalent to 123.8 Fahrenheit, beating a 60-year-old record.
“Yesterday (Thursday) was the hottest temperature ever recorded in the country… 51 degrees in Phalodi,” said B.P. Yadav, a director of the India Meteorological Department (IMD).
Hundreds of people die every year from the heat in India, with May and June usually the hottest months.
The latest record high came as the IMD issued warnings of “severe heat wave” conditions across large parts of India’s north and west, including the capital Delhi, where temperatures hit 47 degrees Celsius earlier this week.
Zoo animals in the capital were treated to cold baths and given electrolytes to prevent dehydration.
