According to a weekly report from the health secretariat, at least 2,567 persons have had heat-related ailments this warm season, which began in mid-March and will end in early October.

A dozen Mexican towns smashed heat records in May, with Mexico City reaching an all-time high of 34.7 degrees Celsius on May 25th.

As temperatures soared, scores of howler monkeys died in the treetops of southern Mexico.

Several dams also reached critical levels, although in other areas, Tropical Storm Alberto supplied much-needed rain this week.

According to a World Weather Attribution (WWA) research published on Thursday, global warming increased the likelihood of the lethal heat that covered the United States, Mexico, and Central America in May and June by 35 times.
