New Delhi, India, hits a record high temperature of 52.3°C

In New Delhi, India’s capital, temperatures reached a record-breaking 52.3°C, surpassing the previous high recorded in Rajasthan.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) issued a red alert for Delhi, warning residents about the dangers of the extreme heat. They noted that the intense heatwave is expected to gradually ease starting from Thursday.

Delhi authorities also informed residents about potential water shortages and have reduced water supply to ensure that areas with low availability receive adequate amounts. This measure aims to mitigate the effects of the heatwave on daily life. The extreme heat, exacerbated by climate change, has also affected neighboring Pakistan. In Mohenjo Daro, temperatures soared to 53°C, raising additional health and safety concerns.

Simultaneously, Cyclone Remal brought severe weather conditions to India’s West Bengal and Mizoram states, as well as Bangladesh. This event underscores the significant and widespread impacts of climate change on the region.

These developments highlight the urgent need for adaptation measures and global efforts to address the increasing challenges posed by extreme weather events linked to climate change.
