Sul da Europa assolado por incêndios florestais

August 12, 2021 - Uma onda de calor alimentada por ar quente do norte de África assolou a região do Mediterrâneo nos últimos dias, contribuindo para grandes incêndios e matando dezenas de pessoas na Itália, Turquia e Argélia.

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.
