Heat wave

The exceptional high temperatures have caused the death of four elderly people in Sisak. The heat was too much for them while waiting for the bus. Sisak's meteorological station recorded a temperature of 31 degrees around three in the afternoon.
More east, in Slavonia, farmers are desperately waiting for rain. The catastrophic drought threatens to ruin their crops in a very early period of the year. The average quantity of precipitation in April is around 80 liters per square meter, but this April saw only 10 liters. Some plant deceases that had not been around for years have reappeared due to the exceptional meteorological circumstances. It should rain heavily later this week, but many are afraid it will be too little too late.
