Heatwave smashes temp records in Europe

Never in recorded history has Paris been hotter than it was on Thursday. The same was true of Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands, as a dangerous heat wave left people across Western Europe scrambling to seek relief.

The rising temperatures sent records falling across the Continent, one by one. In Paris, a record set in 1947 — 40.4° Celsius — was broken on Thursday when the temperature soared to 42.6° Celsius, according to the French national weather service, which said the temperatures could rise further. In the Netherlands, temperatures topped 40° Celsius, breaking the record set only a day earlier, the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute said. In Germany, the northwestern town of Lingen hit 42.6°Celsius.
And for the second time this week, Belgium measured its hottest day, with temperatures of 40.6° Celsius in Kleine Brogel on Thursday passing the mark of 40.2° Celsius hit a day earlier. In Britain, by 4 pm, Cambridge had measured 38.1° Celsius, the hottest day recorded in July in Britain and the second-hottest in general, according to the weather service.
