Europe heat wave to bring record temperatures

Widespread warnings for medium or high temperatures have been issued in many countries in Western, Central and even Northeast Europe.
Weather forecasts in the UK say that this week the country will go into a heat wave that can set a new record for the hottest day. Temperatures will reach peak on Thursday, when mercury could reach dry 39 degrees Celsius (102.2 Fahrenheit), according to the United Kingdom's National Meteorological Office, Metro's office.

The hottest temperature ever recorded in the United Kingdom was 38.5 ° C (101.3 F) recorded in Faversham, Southeast England in August 2003, according to the Met Office.

The most hot day of recording is Britain. academics are calling for names of heat waves to ensure that the associated hazards are clearly communicated to the public.

"The Meeting Office should do more to warn people of the dangers of heat waves and have to give names to the heat waves as it does for the winter storms," ​​the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment in The London School of Economics and Political Science said on Tuesday

The Institute cites public health data in England to highlight about 863 "surplus deaths" as a result of three heat wave events last summer, which is the hottest in England. "Many more people in the United Kingdom have died of recent heat waves than from storms, so it must be clear to start using the names of both," said Bob Ward, director of the Institute's policy.

He added: "The government and its agencies, including the Office of Meetings, should lead the way in dealing with the increasing dangers of heat waves and other impacts of climate change, so that the British public is better informed and can to protect. "

The government does not raise this issue but also risks encouraging the media to continue to underestimate these risks in their coverage and continue to be preventable deaths," Ward warned.
