Cap­i­tal in the grip of a heat wave

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A group of tourists, hold­ing um­brel­las to shield them­selves from the scorch­ing sun, walk up the steps at Syn­tagma Square in Athens. A sum­mer heat wave has hit Greece, with tem­per­a­tures reach­ing a high of 43 de­grees in the cap­i­tal at the week­end. Au­thor­i­ties ad­vised the usual pre­cau­tions for the el­derly and young chil­dren as well as peo­ple with heart and breath­ing prob­lems, urg­ing them to re­frain from un­nec­es­sary ex­er­tion and ex­po­sure to the heat and sun, drink plenty of wa­ter and keep their homes as cool as pos­si­ble.
