This Is No Illusion — Deadly Heat is Melting Roads in India
Conditions continue to worsen in India, as a heatwave is relentlessly pounding its population. At least 1,000 people have died in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana as a result of the record heat, according to the HindustanTimes. The projected forecast for the rest of the month doesn't offer any immediate hope of relief, either. The photo above, taken in Safdarjung, Delhi, shows the asphalt and tar literally melting off the surface of the road. In parts of Andhra, temperatures were recently recorded at a blistering 115 degrees, and the daily temp has been hovering just hotter than 110 around the country.
As the infographic shows, the record high temperature in May in Delhi is 47.2 degrees Celsius, or 116.96 degrees Fahrenheit. In addition, humidity levels have been making conditions even more uncomfortable, sitting around 60-70 percent.
The heat is expected to continue until the southwest monsoon hits, according to HT.
