In the summer, we will feel hot. This weather can be dangerous. In 2003, more than 10,000 people died in France because the weather was too hot.
This year, the heat wave came to Europe again. There are fewer people died in France than in 2003, as only 5 people died.
This heat wave also broke the air temperature records of France, Germany, and Poland.
