I live in Mayrhofen, Austria, grew up in both England and Holland and just recently gone back on the road now driving all over Europe in a van. Or better said: about to. I was supossed to go to England last night, I'm waiting for my colleague, but he went into hospital last night in Belgium somewhere. He's at Calais now, gone to England without me, but hopefully he'll be here tonight. I'm waiting for my van. I drove overnight from Mayrhofen to Holland last Saturday.

Tropical heat in Hungary.
For August 25 the hottest ever measured temperature was 36.5C (97.7F, recorded in 1943). Today in a little town in Souther Hungary (Csávoly) 39.2C 102.6F) was recorded.
In Budapest the top was 34.6C (94.3F) until today, recorded in 1890. This afternoon 38.0C (100.4F).
This year's hottest day will be probably tomorrow.
As for my personal feeling the most terrible temperature of the year is today, right 32C (90F) at my desk.

It is extraordinary to have such a heat in this period of the year. Usually here the summer is cancelled around August 20, but this year first part of August was unusually chilly (under 20C in afternoon) and now the weather is extremely hot.

The Czech Republic is also quite hot, all days I've been here it's been over 30 degrees, though we had some severe weather last night. Most people on the campsite left this morning, and I noticed a Slovenian couple who had their tent completely soaked.

Bad reports from Italy... my girlfriend in Brescia told me it's 41°C there...

It has been about 32/4C since monday here in the moutains, on a south they got 37C. At the moment it is 31C, I spent this afternoon in a little charming village of Mošovce. Water in a swimming pool had the right temperature: 19C. Then we got some dinner from bakery and beer, I finally enjoyed one of these warm days after a week of learning.

About earthquakes, I didn't felt any, although I know there was a magnitude 4 or sth like that some years ago.

About weather, not that bad here, but we have reached 38ºC (100ºF, 311 K) some days ago. Maybe the jet stream is too North, over central Europe.

Actually, there will be the hottest day in Denmark too(this year), maybe 30.0C as the weather people promise, strange. It has been a rainy and "chilly" summer here, this year.

The warmest day I have ever experienced in england it was about 27C in June, the hottest day of the year it was about 30C max and they stopped the trains.

"Temperatures will hit 31C (88F) in some parts of the country, beating the highs of 28C (82F) that made yesterday which was the hottest day of the year."

"And in Newhaven, East Sussex, a Co-op funeral store almost burned down when the sun reflected off a window."

"The sizzling light acted like a prism and set fire to flowers in the 28C heat. Firefighters took an hour putting out the fire after a member of the public spotted smoke in the shop window and raised the alarm."

"In Brighton, steps leading to the beach even started to melt. Brighton and Hove council said that recently laid asphalt had could not withstand the heat combined with heavy usage."

"A heat warning issued by the Met Office on Friday remained in place, alerting people to the possibility the weather could have a significant effect on health."
