Italy is sizzling, and we’re not just talking about the gorgeous men and women. Temperatures all over the country are approaching or over 100 degrees and presenting a health hazard. Some regions where the heat and dryness have combined to spark wildfires have declared states of emergency. “Fires forced the rescue of about 250 beach-goers by boat on the Gargano peninsula (Puglia), above the heel of the Italian boot, where temperatures hit 107 degrees,” Italian news agency ANSA reported today. A plane involved in firefighting crashed in Abruzzo Monday killing the pilot and injuring a crew member.
