Get an air conditioner?
From San Francisco to Los Angeles, California is bracing for a weekend of potentially historic heat, with temperatures forecasted to climb as high as 115°F in some areas of the state. That heat is helping to fuel wildfires, which have broken out in the Sacramento Valley and around Los Angeles. An air pollution specialist with the state’s Air Resources Board urged people especially susceptible to health problems from smoke — the asthmatic, the elderly, or people with weakened immune systems — to remain indoors throughout Friday and Saturday.
This is hardly the first record-breaking heat wave to make headlines during the summer of 2017. Earlier this month, oppressive heat throughout Eastern Europe, France, Italy, and Spain was responsible for at least six deaths and the outbreak of several wildfires. The Pacific Northwest also had to contend with extremely high heat combined with smoke from wildfires in Canada earlier this month, creating a situation similar to what is being seen now in California where high temperatures combine with wildfire to create dangerous air quality, fueling concerns about public health. And in Arizona earlier this summer, it was so hot that planes literally could not take off: at least 38 flights out of Phoenix were grounded as temperatures climbed near 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
At least 21 people are dead and more than a dozen others trapped after monsoon downpours caused a building to collapse in Mumbai.
Vast swaths of land are underwater in the eastern part of the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, where more than 100 people have reportedly died, 3,097 villages are submerged and almost 3 million villagers have been affected by flooding, according to officials. Army personnel have joined rescuers to evacuate people from the area.
