Heatwave

Karachi, the world’s second-largest city by population, is emerging from the grips of a deadly heatwave. A persistent low-pressure system camped over the Arabian Sea stifled ocean breezes and brought temperatures in excess of 113°F (45°C) to the city of 23 million people in June. The searing heat disrupted electricity and water service, making life nearly unbearable.

Officials believe that the heatwave killed at least 1,200 Pakistanis, more than twice the number of people killed in terrorist assaults this year. However, meteorology alone cannot account for this unexpected change of events. Rather, like with many natural disasters, Karachi’s (weather) heatwave is the result of a complex interaction of natural and man-made elements.
