In Israel, the heat record died yesterday. In the Sodom region, on the Dead Sea, it became a whopping 50 degrees Celsius. This is reported by the Israeli meteorological service.
Even in the Mediterranean Sea, the mercury rose to 42 degrees yesterday. The humidity was unusually low for the time of year, ranging from 10 to 25 percent in different parts of the country.
The fire also broke out in various places in Israel. A few slightly injured people were injured and the residents of 200 houses had to be evacuated.
To put the icing on the cake: in June 1942 it was already recorded a record temperature of 54 degrees in Tirat Zvi in the Beit She’an Valley, but that was before the founding of Israel in 1948.
According to the meteorological service, the record temperature is the result of the greenhouse effect and global warming.
