The historic bridge connecting Pakistan and China was destroyed and demolished by strong tides on Saturday after intense heat melted the glacier and released streams of water into the stream.

The Hasanabad Bridge in Pakistan, located along the strategic Karakorum Highway, collapsed after the country experienced record high temperatures in April, which melted glaciers faster than usual, according to The Washington Post.

According to AccuWeather, temperatures of 26 ° to 32 ° have been recorded in high places in northern Pakistan over the past few weeks, while temperatures have risen by 43 ° at lower altitudes. The air temperature is 5-10 degrees above average, according to the site of meteorology.

Dramatic videos circulated online this week show how the bridge is collapsing, and many social media users have expressed concern about the catastrophic consequences of climate change.

According to the Pakistani news agency Dawn, the flood damaged not only the bridge but also houses and buildings, and demolished two power plants.

Over the past two months, Pakistan and its neighboring India have been hit by hot weather that has killed dozens of people in both countries.

Gray Rehman, Pakistan’s federal climate change minister, said in late April that her country had missed the spring season and immediately switched from winter to summer, according to Reuters.
