At least five people have died so far due to an intense heat wave that is scorching southern Europe with temperatures as high as 110F. The heat wave is expected to intensify and expand northward over the next few days and is likely to cause more loss of life and more wildfires. Spain's national weather service issued an emergency warning for 31 of the country's 50 provinces and predicted that temperatures will rise to 111F. In the Alpine country of Slovenia, they experienced their first-ever "tropical night" at an altitude of 4,900 feet when temperatures reached 68F. Heavy traffic is being banned on the roads of Romania due to roadway melt and trains are being slowed to guard against buckling tracks.
