Flächenbrände breiten sich aus

August 12, 2021 - Von der Türkei bis Tunesien, leiden die Länder rund um das Mittelmeer unter den höchsten Temperaturen der letzten Jahrzehnte. Der Klima-Panel der Vereinten Nationen warnte vor weiteren Klimakapriolen.

A heatwave fed by hot air from North Africa has engulfed large parts of the Mediterranean region in recent days, contributing to massive wildfires and killing dozens of people in Italy, Turkey and Algeria.

In Greece, huge wildfires have ravaged forests for a week, destroying homes and forcing evacuations.

Sicily recorded Wednesday what may be a new European temperature record – 48.8 degrees Celsius – though weather experts cautioned that the measurement still must be confirmed.
