Lakhimpur district witnessed a blistering afternoon on August 26th as the maximum temperature was recorded as 39.3 degrees Celsius. Borjhar-based Regional Meteorological Centre informed that today’s heat was the Lakhimpur’s highest ever recorded temperature in the month of August.
After floods, the heat has worsened the situation in the state. The unrelenting heat has added to the woes of people who had to venture out for work. Street animals, homeless people, senior citizens, children, street vendors, traffic police, delivery men and rickshaw drivers are the worst victims of the scorching heat.
However, the good news is rainfall is expected after August 28th, 2019 which will bring down the maximum temperature down.
