Incendios forestales en el sur de Europa

August 12, 2021 - Desde Turquía hasta Túnez, varios países alrededor del Mediterráeo han registrado sus temperaturas más altas en décadas, cuando el panel de Nacions Unidas sobre clima advirtió, esta semana, sobre décadas de alteración climática.

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.
