Heat Wave - Yemen
Permalink  
 


Scorching temperatures have killed seven people in Yemen's southern port city of Aden, the al-Ayyam daily reported on Tuesday. It quoted regional health director Khodor Nasser Lasor as saying that seven people, most of them elderly, had been brought to state hospitals on Monday. All had lost consciousness due to the heat and died. Temperatures in Aden, a humid coastal city on the tip of the Arabian peninsula, reached 43 degrees Celsius on Monday, while intermittent power cuts have put cooling systems out of action. Temperatures in Aden usually fluctuate between 36 and 39 degrees Celsius at this time of year. More than 100 people died in northern India and at least 50 in Pakistan earlier this month due to a heat wave that saw temperatures touch 52 degrees Celsius. Infrastructure and services are lacking in Yemen, one of the poorest countries outside Africa.
