Summer 2021 is not extreme only in Europe, North America and North Africa, but too in parts of Asia, including East Asia.

Olympic Games 2020-21 were accompanied by extreme heatwaves and high humidity/moisture, which had a significant effect on performances of sportsmen and sportswomen /

After late July´s 3 tropical systems, the next 3 systems have appeared in early August (Lupit, Nida and Marinae) and northward from these systems, extremely hot weather is peaking in parts of Japan.

In Tajimi, +40,6°C was measured on 8. August 2021, which is only 0,5°C below the all-time national record!

Extreme heatwaves are suffering people in Vietnam, too – in Bo To, Quang Ngai province, +41,2°C was on 9. August 2021 measured, what is only 0,6°C below all-time national record!

Meanwhile, in southern China, such as was forecasted in Mkweather article above, hit severe floods.

Sichuan, a province in continental southern China is underwater and 100 000 people have been evacuated before dangerous floods.

Such we should notice in the dramatic video below, a man is rescued from a stream of water, but his vehicle is swept into a flood wave.

In SE Asia, only the coast of Vietnam will be drier, with the next possible heatwaves. In India, the southern parts and the Thar desert will be drier.
