Bye bye February, the hottest month in years!
On February 3rd, PORTO ALEGRE, BRAZIL was cosidered "the hottest city in the world" according to the famous weather channel in the US (AccuWeather).
The government of Porto Alegre had to do programeted blackouts of 1h in different neighbourhoods to avoid a big blackout in the state... families were sleeping outside their places because the apartments and houses look like big ovens! PARAGUAY also declared emergency!
Heat index in Celsius / sensação térmica: 45ºC & 55ºC (!) in a football game where a report/soccer player fainted alive on tv!
