Moscow has hottest day on record

Date : 27th July 2010, Source : BBC Link to News Story



Moscow had its hottest day in 130 years of records on Monday shrouded in smoke from forest and peat fires burning around the Russian capital. The temperature soared past the July average maximum of 23.1 C to reach 37.4 C (99.3 F), breaking the previous record of 36.8 C set on 7th August 1920. Fires burning across 59 hectares (145 acres) of parched forest and peat bogs surrounding Moscow sent the city's pollution levels soaring up to eight times higher than normal.
