Ludhiana reels under 44C

Chandigarh, June 11
Most parts of North India reeling under blistering heat today got no respite as the mercury further rose at some places, with the Met Department saying the situation was unlikely to change over the next two days. The heat wave is likely to continue and most parts of Punjab and Haryana will get no succour from heat conditions though duststorm or thunderstorm may hit some isolated places in the region, a Met official said.

Chandigarh residents continued to reel under intense heat, with the mercury today soaring to 42.8C, up three degrees from the normal range making it the seasons hottest day so far. Yesterday, the high here had settled at 42.6C.

Ludhiana in Punjab turned out to be hottest place recording a high of 44C, up three degrees from normal, while Amritsar and Patiala recorded respective maximums of 43.9C and 43.5C.

The rising mercury in Punjab yesterday claimed two lives in Bathinda district, taking the toll to four in the district alone so far.

Delhi residents too faced the onslaught of rising temperatures, with the mercury today settling at 43.6C up by four degrees.

Most Haryana towns were reeling under severe heat. Ambala recorded a high of 43.1C, up by two degrees, while Karnal registered a high of 43.2C.

Hisar recorded a high of 43.7C, up by a degree but over two degrees down from the yesterdays maximum. PTI
