Aussies feel the heat

 
February 7th 2015
 

Homeless people in Melbourne are to get free entry to cinemas and swimming pools to cope with the upcoming heatwave.

In the same way that cold weather shelters open in the UK after three consecutive nights below zero, homeless services in the Australian city will monitor the weather – but for high rather than low temperatures.

A City of Melbourne spokeswoman told the Guardian: “Extreme heat is a silent killer that takes its highest toll on our most vulnerable, such as those who are homeless.” An estimated 167 people died from heat in the state of Victoria last January.
