Heat wave alert as Europe swelters

How to deal with the heat wave hitting Europe? Apparently, this is one of the questions in any European government's agenda. Everybody is rushing to put in place emergency measures. Spain already started it’s ‘fight the heat’ campaign. The southern region of Andalucia (Spain) put in place a text-messaging alert system to warn the elderly and the infirm living alone, as well as parents of young children, of impending high temperatures above 41 degrees Centigrade.
