The unusually high temperatures for June add to the effects of the drought which started since the beginning of the year, making the lives of thousands of Romanians a real hell.
The heat has dramatically affected the lives of the Romanians – dozens of victims, transportation difficulties, lack of water in the rivers and fountains. Hydrologists say that July and August will turn the Romanian Field, Moldavia, Dobrogea and the Western Field into deserts.
The increased consumption of electricity caused by the heat announces a probable increase in the price of the energy, especially because the offer has dropped along with the lowered production at the hydro centrals.
CFR announced that it has introduced since yesterday speed restrictions on 44 train routes in the south of the country, because of the very high temperatures.
