Unprecedented heat in the United States. The temperature goes on record!


Unusually hot weather was established in the United States of America. She has already led to the first victims: according to the Air Force, in the southern United States in Las Vegas (Nevada) an elderly man died of heatstroke.

According to RIA Novosti, the weather forecast for the coming days is also not encouraging: a temperature record is expected.

As is known, according to the results of more than a century-long history of observations, the temperature level is kept by Death Valley, located in southern California in the Mojave Desert. Exactly one hundred years ago, plus 56.7 degrees was recorded there!

Unprecedented heat in the United States. The temperature goes on record!

Yesterday, in the Death Valley, the thermometer rose to plus 51 degrees, and the temperature continues to rise. Weather forecasters warn that soon the same deadly temperatures can warm up the settlements of the states of California, Nevada and southern areas of Arizona, where a terrible heat has already been established.

Whether this weather anomaly is a result of global warming, scientists cannot say for sure. While meteorologists explain the unusual hot weather anticyclone, established over the region.

    As is known, the maximum temperature on the planet - 58 degrees Celsius - was recorded on September 13, 1922 near the city of Al-Azizia in Libya. However, the record was later considered unreliable (measurements were made by an inexperienced meteorologist on outdated equipment).

    Earlier measurements in Death Valley (dated 1913), on the contrary, are recognized as meeting modern requirements, and therefore the official world record of high temperatures is still considered to be 56.7 degrees Celsius. And this record is about to be beaten!
