Temperatures Soar above 50 Celsius in India Heat Wave

NEW DELHI – Temperatures soared above 50 degrees Celsius in India as a heat wave traveling across the Asian country could mean high temperatures will continue in the coming days, the Meteorological Department warned on Sunday.

“Severe Heat Wave conditions were observed in some parts over West Rajasthan and at isolated pockets over East Rajasthan and East Uttar Pradesh; Heat Wave conditions were observed in many parts over Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh & Delhi; in some parts over East Rajasthan & Madhya Pradesh and in isolated pockets over West Rajasthan, south Uttar Pradesh, Vidarbha, Jharkhand, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir,” the Meteorological Department said.

In recent days temperatures have soared above 40 degrees in New Delhi and in various other states across the country.

On Saturday the city of Churu in the deserts of Rajasthan registered 50.6 degrees, the highest on record for the year.

The meteorological department also gave advice on how to deal with the extreme conditions which included avoiding sun exposure, to remain in cool spaces and to keep hydrated.

The organization also warned that authorities in the most vulnerable and affected regions had to be on alert.

With the arrival of the heat wave, access to water could become an issue as water wells could dry up amid a lack of rain. This would affect the wellbeing of both humans and animals.
