In recent years, record heavy rains have fallen in southern China, with unusually high temperatures in central China. Hot roads were torn apart, and transformers exploded, causing damage.
This is Beijing Correspondent Kim Ji-sung.
A road that used to be intact is suddenly destroyed as if there was an earthquake.
As the road surface expands in hot weather, the concrete can’t stand it and it shatters.
Transformer explosions also followed.
This is because the use of electrical appliances such as air conditioners has increased rapidly and the transformer is overloaded.
In central China’s Henan province, temperatures at 59 out of 120 weather stations recently exceeded 40 degrees Celsius.
The surface temperature reached a maximum of 74.1 degrees.
Oiled towels in the car caught fire, and raw eggs were placed on the dashboard of the car to the point of being fully cooked.

The current temperature in Beijing is 32 degrees.
Let’s measure the temperature inside the vehicle.
The car’s interior temperature soared to 63.5 degrees, and the dashboard surface temperature soared to 77.7 degrees.
Due to the high temperature and dry weather, rice field fires are also spreading. In Henan Province and neighboring areas, an orange warning, the second highest among the 4 heat wave warning levels, was issued.

On the other hand, southern China is suffering from abnormal climates, such as continuing torrential rains and increasing damage.
