Heat wave conditions in West Bengal
Kolkata: The southern and western districts of West Bengal, including the metropolis, on Monday reeled under a severe heatwave, with forecast of similar weather conditions on Tuesday.
The city recorded the day`s highest temperature of 40.2 degrees Celsius, regional Met director G C Debnath said.
"While parts of the city suffered from heatwave conditions, districts in western and southern Bengal suffered from severe heatwave conditions," he said.
Birbhum, Burdwan, Bankura, Purulia and West Midnapore districts recorded around 45 degrees Celsius or more during the day.
There was little hope for any respite from the severe heat tomorrow, he said.
