The French Meteorological Agency announced that 13 areas in the southeast of the country were in “orange” state of alert due to the severe heat wave that the country has been experiencing for six consecutive days, but temperatures have started to fall in the west and north.

The heat wave will end with the risk of mild or violent thunderstorms with colds in some places, including the Massif Central, a mountain mass located in the center of France and the Alps, at the same time, the French news outlet reported on Monday.

An unprecedented heat wave swept most parts of Europe, especially western European countries, and many of them recorded temperatures above 40 degrees. In France, last Friday recorded the highest temperature ever at 45.9 degrees Celsius, almost two degrees higher than the previous record 44.1 degrees in August 2003, which led to the deaths of number of people, mostly older age.

On Saturday, the French Meteorological Agency raised the level of red alert for the four regions in the south to become a “cautious, orange” covering 80 areas instead of 75 the day before.
