Apocalyptic Heat wave sweeping across India and killing people also making roads melt

The current heat wave in India is making roads 'melt'

  • Published: , Refreshed:

More than 1,150 people have reportedly died in the heat wave sweeping across the southern part of the country.

Andhra Pradesh suffered the most: 884 people have died as a result of the searing heat since 18 May.

But it’s not much cooler in the north of the country. In New Delhi, the temperature is so high that the asphalt road has started to melt.

Local meteorologists said the heat was a result of north-westerly dry and hot winds from Rajasthan state, which shares a border with Pakistan.

When next you step into the sun and you think its burning, remember the people in India whose roads are melting beneath their feet.
