What's going on in Japan? (No.17)

This was Japan's hottest summer in 113 years, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency. Temperatures from June to August were 1.64 degrees higher than average, and the highest since 1898, the year the weather agency began keeping records. In central Tokyo, there were 48 "tropical nights," when the lowest temperature was 25 degrees, posting a record. The average Tokyo temperature was 27.1 degrees, which was 2.3 degrees higher than average. There were 10 "fiercely hot" days. There is little relief in sight: the agency says the nation can expect daytime high temperatures to hover around 35 degrees at least until Sept. 14. Heatstroke put more than 40,000 people in hospitals this summer and claimed hundreds of lives, mostly senior citizens.
