Our Northern Cape is known for its heat. One town was named "Hot as Hell" until they renamed it "Hotazel". It is not uncommon for temperatures to rise above 40°C (104°F), and in some places people are familiar with 50°C (122°F). Often, too, people live in corrugated iron homes in that heat. With climate change, the already high temperatures are rising. I am told through friends that their friends are now dying of haemorrhages in the heat. I heard of four such tragedies recently. It is just not survivable any more.
