Passengers faint in sweltering heat, becoming routine.

An airport in Las Vegas, USA, is hit by a 44-degree Celsius heat wave.

Takeoff was delayed, and passengers were forced to wait in an airliner without air conditioning for nearly four hours.

Eventually, some passengers who couldn’t beat the heat lost consciousness.

[Krista Garvin/Passenger: “It was chaos, a female passenger who was on the verge of losing consciousness walked down the aisle and the flight attendants put an oxygen mask on her.”]

In Europe, the heat wave has been particularly severe in Italy.

Tourists are more busy cooling off than sightseeing.

[Tourist: “It’s so hot, I’m looking for shade (and cold water).”]

In Sicily, where temperatures reached 47 degrees, there were even deaths.

Elderly people were kept in their homes, groceries were delivered, and emergency hotlines were set up for heat exhaustion.

Heat-weary workers are constantly supplied with ice, but are being forced to work shorter shifts or leave work early.

The phenomenon of heat domes, where hot air is trapped and immobile, continues, especially threatening to vulnerable populations.

[Jose Itanfranco/U.S. Homeless: “I saw a guy sit down and eat and then he fell out of his chair and had a seizure.”]

Experts warn that this kind of extreme heat, with temperatures exceeding 40 degrees, 먹튀검증 could become the norm during the summer months in the future.

Storm damage could also increase.

[Thomas Lippes/British oceanographer: “High ocean temperatures drive the strongest storms, for example, hurricanes form when the water temperature is above 26 degrees Celsius.”]

While heat waves aren’t as visible as storms or heavy rain, the World Health Organization lists them as one of the most dangerous natural disasters.
