Tuesday saw record-breaking heat
8 Aug 2013 Flash News
High temperatures on Tuesday, August 6, broke several records in Slovakia, the Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute (SHMÚ) informed on its website Wednesday.
The hottest temperature was measured in Dudince (in Banská Bystrica region) where the thermometer hit 37.3 degrees. Another 34 meteorological stations also reported figures higher than the past registered peak temperatures for August 6, the TASR newswire wrote. Records were broken mainly in western and central Slovakia, though people in the High Tatras also got their share of heat, where the temperature did not fall below 16 degrees even at the highest elevations, beating a long-standing high of 15.1 degrees from 1961.
The SITA newswire named some of the places where record heat was measured: Hurbanovo with 37.4°C (beating the 1904 record), Nitra (37°C), Žilina (35.4°C), Prievidza (36.4°C), Sliač (36.8°C), Liesek (32.7°C), Lučenec (36.1°C), Košice (34.61C) and Kamenica nad Cirochou (35.4°C).
