Authorities in Serbia and the rest of the Balkans have warned of a hot flare-up of the region, as hot weather is blowing through western Europe.

Today, temperatures are expected to rise to 39 degrees Celsius in Serbia, doctors said. Doctors urged the elderly to stay indoors and not be exposed to the heat of the sun.

The increase in temperature comes after weeks of unusually severe thunderstorms in parts of Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, Bosnia and Croatia, which caused severe flooding and humidity.

Earlier, the French parliament has declared the “climate emergency”. The deputies of the Paris National Assembly took a majority, a submission by the government, which is referred to an “environmental and climate emergency”. Environment Minister Francois de Rugy spoke of a “political declaration”. Temperatures of 40 degrees or more had previously been measured in several French regions. On Friday, the previous heat record of 44.1 degrees of 2003 could fall.

During a two-day Abu Dhabi climate meeting, UN-Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said climate-related destruction was hitting the planet in a row, especially with the heat waves in Europe, stressing the need for urgent action to avert a disaster.

UN-Secretary-General warned that the devastating climate gaps are moving increasingly, and climate change is progressing faster than the world’s leading scientists have predicted. “It is beyond our efforts to address them. Climate change is moving faster than we are.”

“Each week brings new climate-related destruction, which includes floods, droughts, heatwaves, forest fires and severe storms,” ​​Guterres said.

Spain have already issued fire alerts, especially in Catalonia, when firefighters fired firefighters, which had destroyed the area of agricultural land.

Due to the climate change, most of the European countries including Austria, Italy and Germany are facing severe heat wave following the threats of flood.
