A searing heat wave in India has caused power outages and showed no sign of abating on Thursday (May 23). Some tourists in Jammu and Kashmir said they had travelled from Mumbai to escape the heat, but found the heat wave stretched across large swathes of the country. A meteorologist said the heat followed a pattern of rising temperatures year-on-year since 1984. Power outages have left some without fans or refrigerators and no means to cool down.
