Currently fellow, Anna Abraham, has a new story up today on the record breaking heatwave sweeping across China:

"Almost half of China has been affected by its strongest heatwave since 1961, when complete meteorological observation records began, according to the China Meteorological Administration.

Afflicting northwest, central, and southeast China, the heatwave began on June 13 and broke the 2013 heatwave record of 62 days on August 15. The National Meteorological Center (NMC) of China has issued 30 high-temperature red warnings since the start of the heatwave, with 12 consecutive days of red warnings. China employs a four-tier warning system with red warnings representing the most severe event.

Over 200 national weather observatories have registered extremely high temperatures, with 45 degrees C (115 degrees F) recorded in southwest China’s Chongqing city last week."
