A searing heatwave has swept across northern and eastern China, causing extreme temperatures. On June 24, 2022, Zhengzhou topped 42.3 degrees Celsius (108°F), breaking the heat record in June since 1954. The hot weather led to a sharp rise in electricity consumption as demand for air conditioning shot up. Meteorological departments have advised the public to avoid outdoor activities and to reduce continuous working hours and workloads during the hot period.
