Australia iguala su día más caluroso registrado

By Jordi Bou

January 13, 2022 - Australiaha igualó su día más caluroso desde que tiene registros cuando el termómetro alcanzó 50,7°C en la ciudad costera occidental de Onslow.

The previous hottest day in Australian history was in Jan 2, 1960, when temperatures in Oodnadatta Airport in South Australia also hit 50.7.

In Roebourne and Mardie, temperatures hit 50.5 degrees about midday, both tied with the the second-hottest day in Australian records.

The record-breaking heat comes just days after a report from the EU's satellite system confirmed that the past seven years have been the hottest on record.

Heatwaves are becoming more likely and more extreme because of human-induced climate change.
