Spain Swelters are suffering in the second heatwave due to temperature rises.
Spaniards battled oppressive temperatures as high as 43C (110F) as the nation endured its second heatwave of the year by staying in the shade in parks, going to the beach, or sipping cold beverages.
Temperatures have soared due to hot air from North Africa and warm summer sunlight, according to official meteorological analysts AEMET on Sunday. The heatwave might linger until July 14.
Forecasters said that Badajoz, in western Spain, and the Guadalquivir river in Seville, in southern Spain, both had Sunday’s highest recorded temperatures of 43C (110F).
The heatwave was an unwanted surprise when Rasha, a 45-year-old Syrian health executive residing in Abu Dhabi, was on vacation.
“On a vacation, it’s not as delightful as we want, but it is what it is. In contrast to the desert, though, it is not so horrible. “She spoke to Reuters.
Guatemalan builder Lazaro Cun, 37, avoided the heat by staying in the shade at Madrid’s Casa de Campo Park.
He remarked that even if it’s hot, having wind makes you feel better.
According to AEMET spokesperson Ruben del Campo, temperatures in southern Spain’s Extremadura or Corboda might reach 44 degrees Celsius.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, temperatures in central Spain like Castille, Leon, and Galicia might reach 42 degrees Celsius.
Del Campo said that the temperature also presented a significant danger for woodland fires.
90 firemen were struggling to put out a wildfire that erupted on Saturday night in La Rioja, northern Spain, according to regional officials on Sunday.
According to the Andalusian regional authorities, about 100 residents in El Ronquillo, close to Seville, had to be evacuated when a fire threatened their houses.
According to AEMET, Spain saw its first heatwave since 1981 June, with some regions of central and southern Spain seeing temperatures over 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
