The heat wave in India is starting to have consequences on the public roads which are starting to melt.

CNN is reporting that more than 1,700 people have died in India so far due to extremely high temperatures which in some areas have hit 45 degrees Celsius (113 degrees Fahrenheit). Unfortunately, the forecast issued by the India Meteorological Department shows there won't be any significant changes in the following days.

The attached photo of a pedestrian crossing was taken in Safdarjung, Delhi and shows the roads have started to melt because of the unbearably high temperatures. The local authorities advise Indians to avoid going out in the 11 AM and 4 PM interval and drink plenty of water and also wear a hat for protection against the powerful sun rays.
