Several violent heat waves hit the west coast of the United States in June and July, and last month was measured as the warmest June ever in the United States. The big cities of Las Vegas, Fresno and Redding in particular were hit hard; here several hundred people have lost their lives due to heath.
On July 10, Death Valley in the Mojave Desert in Southern California was 54.4 degrees hot. Signs warned people not to enter the valley, and an equally high temperature has only been measured twice in world history. The world record for the highest temperature ever was also measured in Death Valley, which measured 56.7 degrees in 1913, but scientists have subsequently cast doubt on how accurate the measurement was.
