Violent weather phenomena in southern Europe
In recent weeks, the south of Europe has been struggling with dangerous weather. In many places, the heat is over 40 degrees, which leads to fires. The fire was fought by Greek islands, and now fires have also appeared in Portugal and Spain. The situation is not improved by the fact that there is a lot of strong wind everywhere, which additionally makes it difficult to deal with the element.
Heat waves are in the forecast for the next few days. There are also more and more hospital visits because of the heat. Breakdowns are happening more and more often.
