Transformer finds Spain's heatwave ‘unbearable'

STORY: “It's unbearable, it burns a lot,” Jon Mariano told Reuters after posing with tourists in the Spanish capital Madrid’s Plaza Espana.

Temperatures reached 42 C (108 Fahrenheit) degrees in the Guadalquivir valley in Seville and the nearby city of Cordoba on Sunday, the national meteorological office AEMET said.

A cloud of hot air from North Africa has sent temperatures soaring, AEMET forecasters said, and the suffocating heatwave could last in most of Spain until Thursday (June 16), five days before summer officially starts on June 21.
