India records its hottest temperature ever amid heat wave

Posted:

NEW DELHI (AP) -- A city in western India has set a new heat record for the country -- a scorching 123.8 Fahrenheit.

The record set Thursday in the city of Phalodi, in the western state of Rajasthan, comes amid a heat wave in India.

India's meteorological department says the previous high was 123 F, reached in 1956 in the city of Alwar, also in Rajasthan.

Authorities have issued a severe heat wave alert for the next two days in the western states of Gujarat, Rajasthan and parts of the central Madhya Pradesh.

That means the areas can expect temperatures as high as 116.6 Fahrenheit or more.
