India’s New Delhi Records Highest-Ever Temperature of 52.3 Celsius

In India’s capital, New Delhi, 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, cautioning people about the dangers of extreme heat. They warned that the intense heatwave is expected to gradually ease starting from Thursday.

Authorities in Delhi also alerted residents about potential water shortages. They have reduced water supply to ensure that areas with low water availability receive enough. This measure aims to manage the effects of the heatwave on daily life.

The extreme heat, worsened by climate change, has also impacted neighboring Pakistan. In Mohenjo Daro, temperatures soared to 53°C, causing further concerns about health and safety.

At the same time, Cyclone Remal brought severe weather conditions to India’s West Bengal and Mizoram states, as well as to 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.
