The Neighborhood

our street

“Welcome to Global Warming” say the newspapers as Greece is experiencing one of the most dramatic heatwaves ever. So authorities are telling citizens (and should be telling tourists, too) that certain steps should be taken immediately: avoid every single activity that could cause a fire and target use of water and electricity so that the country does not experience water or power outages (except it is NOW that we need ceiling fans and airconditioners).

Some public venue with air conditioning will remain open 24 hours a day during the heatwave to offer homeless and other vulnerable people the possiblity of cooling themselves down.

Some areas of Greece have temperatures as high as 43 degrees Celsius (109 degrees Fahrenheit). In July of 1987, Greece experienced a heatwave that killed 1,300 people. This heatwave is expected to be much wose. SOURCE
