Bulgaria Braces for New Heat Wave
The heat wave will be felt worst in the north of the country, in the Danube plain, where the temperatures could exceed the record highs for the time of the year, registered in the past century since scientists have started taking daily measurements.
In capital Sofia and Plovdiv, the country's second biggest city, the temperatures on Monday reached 35 degrees.
In Sofia alone, 16 people collapsed from the heat, and more than a hundred in the country as a whole. To prevent such occurrences, doctors recommend a high intake of liquids and avoiding going outside in the afternoon.
Another consequence of the high temperatures is the ban on trucks heavier than 20 tonnes from moving on the countries highways during the daytime, in order to prevent the misshaping of tarmac, with a similar ban on trucks heavier than 10 tonnes imposed in Sofia.
