Big damage after severe storm in Baselo

Germany is facing another very hot day – just then, according to the German Weather Service (DWD) forecast, should it cool down again. On Wednesday, July 20, extremely high temperatures of up to 40 degrees will say goodbye to the western half of the country and move towards the rest of the republic. According to DWD, it is expected to remain 34 to 40 degrees in the eastern part.

Europe’s scorching heat was also felt on Tuesday in Germany, where temperatures often hover above 35 degrees. In the west, the DWD also considered possible temperatures of more than 40 degrees – Duisburg (Duisburg-Barrel station) in the evening turned out to be the hottest place with 39.5 degrees. It also made Tuesday the hottest day of the year so far. A month earlier (June 19) the temperature in Cottbus and Dresden was 39.2 °C. The annual heat record for Germany was not broken in 2022: it is 41.2 degrees – measured on July 25, 2019 in Duisburg and Tönisworst on the Lower Rhine near Krefeld.

future heat waves normal

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in Geneva is confident that heat waves in Europe will now be normal in the summer months. “Episodes like these are becoming more frequent and the negative trend will continue until at least 2060, regardless of the success of our climate protection efforts,” WMO Secretary-General Petrie Talas said on Tuesday. It can also be hot in Europe. Talas said governments need to do a lot more to mitigate climate change. “I hope these events are a wake-up call for governments and will have consequences in the next elections in democratic countries.”

The Italian fire department on Tuesday evacuated more than 100 people from their homes in Tuscany after a massive forest fire broke out near Lucca. The fire in Massarossa Municipality has been on emergency services since Monday evening. Tuscany’s regional president, Eugenio Gianni, spoke of about 400 hectares of affected area. The smoke had spread to the surrounding provinces. Five helicopters and four fire fighters doused the flames from the air.

“Dream Season” in Greece

Greece, which is battling heat waves, also announced more pleasant temperatures on Wednesday. Athens should be around 30 degrees warmer, with the maximum temperature around noon predicted for the holiday island of Crete at 27 degrees. “Dream weather”, as the Greek media call it, is the result of strong northerly winds in and around the Aegean. Civil Defense warned that these winds could turn even the smallest fire into a major fire.

According to the government, the wildfires of the past few weeks in Portugal, also a holiday destination, are due to negligence and intentional arson. Interior Minister Jose Luis Carneiro said more than 50 people suspected of being responsible for the forest fires had been arrested by mid-July this year. According to the authorities’ findings, only 23 percent of all fires in Portugal have purely natural causes, he said. According to Carneiro, 13 percent intentionally started arson. According to the nature conservation authority ICNF, fires in Portugal have destroyed nearly 60,000 hectares in just six and a half months this year – more than double the number of years last year.
