A severe heat wave is blowing in Argentina – power outage in Buenos Aires

RTL meteorologist Martin Pescher assesses the situation in Argentina as follows: “Argentina is facing a severe heat wave. At present, the temperature here has reached 43 degrees. And this is not the end of it. In the next few days, it will be even hotter and the maximum temperature will be 45 degrees or more. Even the record breaking of 48.9 degrees of heat cannot be ruled out completely.”

700,000 people in a large area of ​​Buenos Aires suffered the heat without air conditioning: the electricity had failed. According to media reports, the reason for the power outage was a fire in a power line outside Buenos Aires. Network operators had previously reported high levels of electricity demand. Many people turned on their air conditioners because of the heat. In Buenos Aires, the temperature was measured around 39 degrees in the afternoon.
