At least 24,000 people have been evacuated in southwest France due to wildfires, authorities said Monday.

“Despite the important ground and air means committed, the situation is not resolved,” the Nouvelle-Aquitaine and Gironde prefecture said in a tweet. Since Monday morning, 300 more hectares (741 acres) of land have burned, totaling some 14,300 hectares (more than 35,000 acres), according to the prefecture.

According to Meteo France, the country’s national meteorological service, the country has seen only eight days since May when average daily temperatures were below aggregated summer average temperatures.

In the remaining 39 days, daily temperatures have been above average temperatures observed between 1991 and 2020 for this time of year, according to Meteo France data.
