Incredible news: the heat wave in France may have caused the death of 3000 to 4000 people. There's 50% more people dying than usually in August. Most of these "extra" are old people unable to face temperatures up to 40°C.
But the most incredible is that the funerals cannot be held: dead people have to queue to be buried! Mortuaries are overloaded, leading to the opening of temporary mortuaries in cold rooms normally used for food wholesale markets! And there's even a coffins shortage!
Fortunately, temperature started to drop yesterday, and it's raining this evening.
