The current heat wave will end next Sunday, according to Chairman of the Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA) Ahmed Abdel-Aal in a statement to Al-Masry Al-Youm.

He added that citizens must ensure they drink a lot between breakfast and Suhoor time, increase their intake of foods with high liquid content and avoid direct exposure to the sun.

Meteorologists had predicted the very hot weather to continue on Monday in the daylight hours, with milder temperatures at night.

+++THE GREAT HEAT WAVE DIEING STARTS +++

Death toll climbs in Karachi heatwave
Charity says at least 65 people have died in Pakistani city as temperatures exceed 40C
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/ ... i-heatwave

An intense heatwave across south Asia has killed dozens of people with sustained temperatures in excess of 40C (104F) coinciding with power cuts and Ramadan, when many Muslims avoid eating or drinking water.

At least 65 people have died in Karachi in recent days according to the charitable organisation that runs the central morgue in the Pakistani port city, as volunteers handed out water to labourers and others working outside in temperatures as high as 44C.

Local media reports claimed the death toll could have exceeded 100 in the sprawling megacity of 15 million, where high temperatures are exacerbated by an absence of green space, estimated to make up just 7% of the urban area.

Authorities in Karachi have not confirmed the death toll but urged people to stay indoors and keep drinking water.

Such news is good to have reported. Thanks for making the effort to do so.

I initially assumed the claim of 50 or 60 celsius was just exaggeration. But looking it up, I see we've already exceeded 50 C in the Middle East, and had quite a few over 45 C in recent years.

One wonders how bad it has to get for the deniers to wake up.

The ironic thing is the failure of the power grid left the poor people of this city vulnerable to heat. Investing in some reliable coal fired power plants would go along way to prevent these kinds of deaths. A few countries restricting CO2 emissions ala Paris accord will do nothing to prevent future heat waves and potential deaths from occurring. I wonder what Pakistan will do (I should say continue to do)? Of course the real problem is population growth. And the real solution to climate change is curbing population growth.

Hotter than average temperatures have killed at least 65 people in just three days in Karachi, Pakistan.

Temperatures reached a high of 44 degrees Celsius (111 Fahrenheit) on Monday, according to the Pakistan Meteorological Department, way above the average daily high for May of 35 degrees Celsius (95 Fahrenheit).

The situation was exacerbated by power outages citywide and ongoing fasting for the holy month of Ramadan, during which many Muslims abstain from eating and drinking during daylight hours...

WASHINGTON: The World Bank on Wednesday announced that two days of talks with a Pakistani delegation did not lead to an agreement on the way forward in Pakistan’s water dispute with India.

A four-member Pakistani delegation arrived in Washington on Sunday, a day after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated a controversial dam in India-held Kashmir, for talks with senior World Bank officials. Pakistan fears the dam will reduce its share in the waters of the Indus and its tributaries and will also damage the ecosystem of the Neelum and Jhelum rivers.....

In other parts of the city, the mercury soared even higher. Readings hit as high as 35.9 degrees in Peng Chau, west of Hong Kong Island, and Ta Kwu Ling in the northern New Territories registered 35.8 degrees.

The 10-day streak of temperatures reaching at least 33 degrees is the longest run of such hot weather in the city for the month of May.

The last time there was such a prolonged stretch of high temperatures in the month was a run of eight consecutive days in 1963. At the time, Hong Kong was in the middle of one of its worst droughts.

The Food Crises: The US Drought
Marco Lagi, Yavni Bar-Yam and Yaneer Bar-Yam
New England Complex Systems Institute

(Dated: July 23, 2012)
Abstract
Recent droughts in the midwestern United States threaten to cause global catastrophe driven
by a speculator amplified food price bubble. Here we show the effect of speculators on food prices
using a validated quantitative model that accurately describes historical food prices. During the
last six years, high and fluctuating food prices have lead to widespread hunger and social unrest.
While a relative dip in food prices occurred during the spring of 2012, a massive drought in the
American Midwest in June and July threatens to trigger another crisis.

South African Riots: Repercussion of the Global Food Crisis and US Drought
Yavni Bar-Yam, Marco Lagi, Yaneer Bar-Yam
(Submitted on 19 Jul 2013)
High and volatile global food prices have led to food riots and played a critical role in triggering the Arab Spring revolutions in recent years. The severe drought in the US in the summer of 2012 led to a new increase in food prices. Through the fall, they remained at a threshold above which the riots and revolutions had predominantly occurred. Global prices at this level create conditions where an exacerbating local circumstance can trigger unrest. Global corn (maize) prices reached new highs, and countries that depend mostly on maize are more likely to experience high local food prices and associated pressures toward social unrest. Here we analyze the conditions in South Africa, which is a heavily maize-dependent country. Coinciding with increased consumer food indices this summer, massive labor strikes in mining and agriculture have led to the greatest single incident of social violence since the fall of apartheid in 1994. Worker demands for dramatic pay increases reflect that their wages have not kept up with drastic increases in the prices of necessities, especially food. Without attention to the global food price situation, more incidents of food-based social instability are likely to arise. Other countries that have manifested food-related protests and riots in 2012 include Haiti and Argentina. Moreover, these cases of unrest are just the most visible symptom of widespread suffering of poor populations worldwide due to elevated food prices. Policy decisions that would directly impact food prices are decreasing the conversion of maize to ethanol in the US, and reimposing regulations on commodity futures markets to prevent excessive speculation, which we have shown causes bubbles and crashes in these markets. Absent such policy actions, governments and companies should track and mitigate the impact of high and volatile food prices on citizens and employees.

The nation has boosted coal imports by 8.2% to 121 million tons in the first five months this year even as policy makers imposed restrictions on some shipments.

Blistering heat is forecast to bake much of the U.S. with widespread temperatures in the mid-to-upper 90s as far north as Wisconsin.

It will feel like the middle of the summer in Kansas City, St. Louis, Chicago, Cincinnati, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York City, AccuWeather said.

"Heat of this magnitude is not uncommon for this part of the season, but intense June sunshine can make if feel worse than a similar hot and humid spell in August or September when the sun is weaker," AccuWeather meteorologist Bob Larson said....
