India’s capital had a high temperature of 42 Celsius (107.6 Fahrenheit) on Wednesday. The sweltering summer heat has caused at least 1,100 this month in the southeastern states of Andhra Pradesh and Telengana, and the high temperatures are forecast to last at least another week. Monsoon rains start to arrive in the first week of June and gradually cover the entire country.
