Pakistan Prepares Graves for Looming Heat Wave

Categories: Life Stories

We have known for quite some time that those most affected by extreme climates are those in low-income nations like Pakistan, India, Iran, and others. These areas located near the equator suffer some of the most extreme temperatures in the world.

Last year, Pakistan was not as prepared, and a deadly heat wave killed thousands. Now, the nation is attempting to prepare by digging thousands of mass graves, just waiting for the latest victims of the sweltering heat.

Local governments have also made efforts to provide water stations to citizens as well as trying to give relief to low income and elderly residents.

These efforts are no doubt just in time as Pakistan’s southern neighbor India suffered its highest temperature ever on Thursday at a volcanic 123.8 degrees fahrenheit.
