Heatwave kills seven in Argentina

Recommended Posts

 

A heatwave affecting Argentina has left at least seven people dead - most of them elderly - in the past week, officials say.

 

The heat has been compounded by power cuts, which have prevented many people from using air conditioning.

 

In Santiago del Estero and other northern provinces temperatures have soared to over 45C (113F).

 

Meteorologists say it has been the worst heatwave in the region since records began in 1906.

 

The victims of the extreme weather lived in Santiago del Estero, located 1,100km (680 miles) north of Buenos Aires.

Hundreds of people in the province have required medical help and doctors have warned people to stay indoors during the hottest hours.
