Heat Wave! Record Highs Burn Australia

The Midwest might be suffering from severe Winter storms and power outages, but Down Under record-high temperatures are torturing rural towns with wild fires, and Australian Open tennis players and spectators with heat stroke. In Melbourne, temperatures reached 113 F° (45.1°C), marking the third consecutive day with temperatures over 109°F (43°C).


The conditions have been described as furnace-like, and the professional tennis players in town have quicker feet than usual — they say their feet feel like they're burning through their shoes.

If it's chilly in your neck of the woods, these pics from Australia will surely warm you up!
