Hottest May since 1966, water sprinkler tankers deployed. Temperatures soar to 49 °C in New Delhi



 1. Parts of India are still struggling to live with a series of intense heat waves as temperatures rocket to 49 °C in the capital New Delhi.

2. Water sprinkler tankers deployed to cool off the streets of Jodhpur, Rajasthan.

After a record hot March and April, north India is experiencing the hottest May temperatures since 1966.

India recorded its hottest March since 1901, forcing authorities to close schools, deal with landfill based fires and shrivelling crops, while doctors saw an uptick in heat-related illnesses.

Shortfall in rain is said to be one of the biggest reasons for the extremely high temperatures, according to the Indian Meteorological Department.

Rajendra Kumar Jenamani, of the Indian Meteorological Department, said in the last few days temperatures had reached between up to 48-49 degrees Celsius.
