Reuters – With a heatwave stifling southeastern Australia, the best place to be, as elephants Luk Chai and Pathi Harn discovered on Tuesday (January 15), is in the water.

It’s not just animals feeling the pressure, many Australians on Tuesday took to waterparks and the sea to keep cool. They have been warned to avoid exerting themselves outdoors and to drink lots of water as record temperatures in parts of the country look set to linger, and even increase, over coming days.

Parts of New South Wales, Australia’s most populated state, and an area of Western Australia saw record high minimum temperatures of 33 Celsius (91 Fahrenheit) overnight.

The maximum is expected to soar to more than 45C (113F) on Wednesday (January 16) in parts of New South Wales, South Australia, and Victoria, the Bureau of Meteorology said.
