April becomes second warmest on record

Last month was the second warmest April on record, with above average temperatures over most of the globe. Euronews reported.  
 
In Iran and other parts of the Middle East, the unusually wet spring caused continued flooding, while Southeastern Siberia, central and eastern Europe were drier than average, the source said. 
 
The warm and dry conditions increased the likelihood of wildfires that swept through Trans-Baikal region in Russia, parts of Sweden and the UK.
 
The melting of land ice and thermal expansion of the ocean led to a continued rise in sea levels, threatening coastal communities around the world.
 
According to the source, aver the last 25 years, global sea level has increased by about 8 cm.
