An unprecedented drought has gripped the Old Continent.

Most climatologists are of the opinion that droughts will become more frequent and last longer.

This was stated by Simeon Matev from the "Climatology" department at SU on the air of BNT.

We have to prepare for sushi and, unfortunately, it's going to get heavier, he said.

In some places in Europe, the drought is unprecedented - there are bans on household needs, water restrictions, and this is unacceptable for a modern European, said Matev.

The leading factor for the drought is the lack of precipitation, high temperatures.

These high temperatures for Europe are historic.

In July, Britain recorded a historic temperature of over 40 degrees.

Another factor is low atmospheric humidity and long periods without precipitation.

I saw a heavy sight.

With screaming and roaring children.

The sight of children covered in blood from head to toe is quite shocking to most people, but most of them were in stable condition with one or two lacerations.

It had to be determined who were in serious condition and shock.

I have lost count of how many children I have helped.

My colleague and I tried to help as many children as possible.

A few minutes had passed since the accident.

There were over 50-100 cars stopped in the emergency lane - people helping the injured, says the doctor.

"For people who are not used to blood and such sights, the situation was terrible looking - children covered in blood, screaming, in shock of horror.

A large number of them had minor traumas and injuries, but lacerations to the head, resulting in profuse bleeding.

The terror in the eyes of these children led to terror in the people who passed by and many of them stopped and got involved."
