Greece plans to name heatwaves in the same way as storms
Personalising the ‘silent killer’ hot spells could raise awareness in time to avert loss of life and property, say scientists

Spurred on by this summer’s record temperatures, Greek scientists have begun discussing the need to name and rank heatwaves, better known for their invisibility, before rampant wildfires made the realities of the climate crisis increasingly stark.

A preventative measure, the move would enable policymakers and affected populations to be more prepared for what are being described by experts as “silent killers.”

Three premature deaths on neighbouring Zakynthos: Friday night a 44 y-o male passed away in ICU at Zakynthos hospital due to covid-19 and in the early hours of this morning a 77 y-o male with Covid-19 passed away due to a chronic underlying disease. Yesterday evening a 12 y-o boy was electrocuted when he made contact with a faulty exterior air-conditioning unit while playing hide-and-seek with friends.
