In Jharkhand-India, Jamshedpur recorded a high of 45.8 degree C, six degrees above normal, while several districts in Jharkhand experienced heat wave conditions.
The heat wave on Saturday continued to affect the lives on people in different states like Odisha, Telangana and Jharkhand. Heat wave in Telangana has so far claimed 49 lives and there seems no respite from soaring mercury as the hot weather is likely to prevail at few places in the state for at least two days.
Temperature has been hovering above 40 degrees Celsius in most parts of Telangana since last fortnight prompting the government to issue a heat wave alert in all districts.
Similarly, in view of the prevailing heat wave conditions, the Odisha government Saturday advised its citizens to stay indoors between 11 AM and 3 PM, Indian media reports.
