О книге «Смерть в кредит 2003»
In contrast, the death toll from 2005's Hurricane Katrina, which ravaged New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, was 1,836.
During the 2003 heat wave, a huge high-pressure system hung over Europe for three weeks in August, sending temperatures higher than they had climbed in hundreds of years.
Electrical cables melted, water pumps failed, museum specimens liquefied and nuclear technicians had trouble keeping reactors cool.
But the extent of the human toll was first detected by undertakers, who were being overwhelmed with unclaimed bodies.
In Paris, some of the corpses had to be kept in a warehouse outside the city when mortuaries were full, according to Keller.
But in his research, Keller found that people who lived alone had the greatest risk of dying in a heat wave.
"We have to recognize that heat kills far more people than the cold and that those most likely to die are people on the social margins of society," Keller said in a statement.
