The heatwaves that baked France this summer caused an additional 2,816 deaths compared with the records of the past five years, France’s public health agency said earlier in November.

In 2022, the sweltering heat came coupled with a severe drought in large parts of the country, Meteo France said.

This year’s annual rainfall is expected to be as much as 25 per cent lower than normal, it added.
