Over 140 people were killed in Karachi over the weekend due to a record breaking heat wave. Saturday reached 44.9 degrees Celsius (112.64*F), the highest recorded temperature in Pakistan in the last 15 years.
Hospitals in Pakistan are overcrowded due to the number of patients suffering from heat stroke. Although the temperature will decline over the next few days, Karachi is having frequent power outages as the electricity grids can’t keep up with the demand in the city.
