Record heatwave kills dozens, possibly hundreds in India

Seven consecutive days of extreme temperatures in Delhi, world’s second most populous urban agglomeration with a population of about 25 million, has pushed up the ground ozone levels by more than 3 folds.

Temperatures have been hovering above 45 Celsius (113 Fahrenheit) since last week, amid night-long outages.

“Residents staged sit-in protests outside electricity substations in the state of Uttar Pradesh late on Wednesday, days after protesters had set substations on fire and taken power officials hostage after weeks of daily blackouts,” reported Reuters.

“God alone can provide any relief from the prevailing power crisis,” said the director of Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation,. adding that power would only return after the monsoon arrived and demand fell.

Much of Delhi has been experiencing long blackouts after a surge in demand and damage from a thunderstorm overwhelmed the grid, said the report.

More Extreme Events

“We are witnessing more serious and more extreme events,” said spokesperson for India’s Center for Science and Environment (CSE).

Dozens of unidentified bodies have been discovered in Delhi since Monday.
