The Dutch and Belgian meteorological services also recorded similar figures of 39 degrees Celsius on Wednesday, exceeding record temperatures recorded in the 1940s.

As a result of high temperatures, the Brussels authorities reduced the working hours of staff working outside offices. On the other hand, Belgium's zoo guards fed chickens in huge ice cubes and ice-capped icebergs as northern Europe was experiencing record temperatures during a heatwave which climate experts believe may be repeated.

Tropical temperatures at night

Even at night temperatures barely fall below 24 degrees Celsius in areas of Germany such as the Ruhr region, around the Rhine and Frankfurt, according to the German Meteorological Service (-D). It also warned that heat would reach its highest level on Thursday.

Bonn, Germany's former capital, saw temperatures reaching 39.2 degrees Celsius. The city is located along the Rhine River, where the water level has dropped significantly.

42 ° C in France

Meteorology in France predicted that temperatures range from 37 degrees Celsius to 42 degrees Celsius and are likely to break the record in 1947.

Local authorities imposed restrictions on the use of water in many areas due to the low level of water in some rivers significantly.

France's rail service SNCF has urged passengers to postpone flights, fearing breakdowns due to "exceptional weather conditions," and offered them to recover the payments, noting that their high-speed trains will work slower, the British rail network also announced.

Berlin Mayor Michael Muller and French Prime Minister Edward Philippe issued public appeals to the population to monitor older people and displaced persons.

Pay more attention to the elderly and homeless

"We need to take care of ourselves, care about those people living on their own, and be able to detect the first symptoms of a solar shock," Philip said, referring to the heat wave that hit France in 2003, which claimed thousands of lives.

Muller in Berlin urged the residents not to leave the house without a bottle of water and to donate it to homeless people they met.

The heat wave has drawn public attention again to the problems caused by climate change. A study conducted by the Swiss Federal Technology Institute found that the deadly heatwave lasting weeks in northern Europe in 2018 would not have been possible without climate change, according to statistics.
