    Every summer heat wave has unfortunately been a cause for casualties in India; however, in 2015, the temperature rose to the highest record in the last two decades, with some places reaching 48.0 degrees Celsius (118.4 degrees Fahrenheit). The extremely hot weather claimed more than 2,500 lives in many regions, with the hardest hit being the South Indian states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
