Orissa heat wave toll rises to 84

New Delhi: Sweltering summer conditions claimed six more lives in Orissa on Saturday, taking the State’s casualty figures to an alarming 84.

Most tracts of north India reeled under a hot sun.

Dust haze over the national capital, however, turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as the maximum temperature dipped by about three degrees from Friday’s season’s highest of 44.2 degrees.

A blazing sun kept Punjab on the boil, as temperature soared four notches in Patiala to settle at 42.7 degrees.

Ludhiana baked under 42.5 degrees and Chandigarh at 41.8 degrees as Ambala topped the temperature chart in Haryana with a scorching 41.6 degrees. — PTI
