‘Lucifer’ heatwave holds parts of Europe in fiery grip
Southern and eastern Europe has been suffering from extreme hot weather since Friday, with temperatures reaching over 40 degrees Celsius. This abnormally hot wave of weather has been named “Lucifer”.
Italy and countries in the Balkan Peninsula are the worst affected. The heat wave has fanned forest fires, triggered weather warning alerts, and damaged crops. 
Firefighters and authorities from Serbia, Bosnia, Macedonia and Croatia advised people to stay indoors and increase water intake. Researchers are blaming climate change for the abnormal weather. 
According to the Lancet Planetary Health, heatwaves in southern Europe will claim around 99% of future weather-related deaths there.
