Record heat wave hits Buenos Aires

Argentina’s national weather centre has declared a “red alert” in the capital amid weeks of scorching temperatures.

Official temperature highs in Buenos Aires have been above 30C since the beginning of December, but humidity and other factors have made it feel like the mid-forties – and it is likely to stay that way until the New Year.

The sweltering heat has put a major strain on energy supplies, leading to power cuts.
