Shanghai World Expo Breaks 40 Million in 40°c

The Shanghai World Expo has now had 40 million visitors over the 106 day period.  With the Expo site heating up to even 40c, visitors are still eager on visiting the site.  The city’s weather bureau issued a red heart alert, the highest on a three-scale system.  The heat record at the expo site is 40.7 degrees Celcius.  Expo organisers have issued 1,000 ice blocks, 500 electric fans and more than 2.000 benches in pavilion waiting areas to help people stand the storching heat.  Not only is the heat a definite heath risk but it’s putting pressure on the city’s electricity resources.
