Record heat in Argentina, brought swarms of beetles

Anta Isabel, a city of about 2,500 people in the central Argentine province of La Pampa, has been plagued by hordes of beetles for more than a week.
The heat in the country contributed to their spread.

The other day, a record temperature was recorded here – above 40°C, which is why the country has become the hottest place on the planet.
Hundreds of thousands of people were left without electricity in Buenos Aires due to the failure of power systems that can not withstand the load from air conditioners.

The last time such heat was recorded in 1957, and in 1995 the thermometer rose to +40°C. Scientists link extreme weather events to climate change.
