Scattered rain yesterday, brought much-needed but only temporary relief to parts of India hit by a long heat-wave as the death toll from the blistering temperatures crossed 2,200.

Thunderstorms struck sections of southern states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, which have borne the brunt of the deadliest heat-wave in more than two decades, as well as the capital New Delhi.

But the toll continued to climb and the weather bureau warned that temperatures in swathes of southern, western and northern India would hover around 45°C in coming days.
