U.N. warns of risks as Europe enjoys scorcher
The United Nations warned on Wednesday of the dangers posed by hot weather, especially to children and the elderly, as much of Europe sweltered in a heatwave whose intensity it blamed on climate change.
Authorities should give people as much warning as possible of potentially dangerous high temperatures so that they take can precautions, the World Meteorological Organization and the World Health Organization said.
It also reminded people to drink plenty of water.
Tens of thousands of people died across Europe in a 2003 heatwave and again in Russia in 2010.
