Japan: Heatwave to continue this week

A heat wave in Japan is expected to continue across the country this week, according to AccuWeather.

The heat wave has already claimed more than two dozen lives, with over 12 000 other people hospitalised for heat-related illnesses.

Inland temperatures will reach 35 degrees C every day this week, with only slight relief expected for coastal communities. High humidity levels will raise temperatures past 38 degrees C during the middle of the day and afternoons, hampering ongoing relief efforts following deadly flooding earlier this month.
