US West Scorching Heat Wave Reaches 54 Degree Celsius

The temperature in the US West reached an all-time record high of 130 degrees Fahrenheit for the third continuous day. The Death Valley in California again became the hottest place on the earth by recording the highest temperature.

The temperature was measured outside the Furnace Creek Visitors Center that showed 134 degrees Fahrenheit on Sunday before 4 p.m. However the National Park Service noted that the temperature was slightly more than the official reading.

According to the latest weather updates released by the National Weather Service, the temperature in the US West rose to 130 degrees Fahrenheit, the highest to date.

A ranger measured the temperature on Sunday afternoon, which was recorded at 178 degrees Fahrenheit. Richard Rader of Scottsdale said he had come to the Death Valley side to experience how hot it is.

He said people only came out of their air-conditioned cars to take pictures with the thermometer.

Many regions in the Pacific Northwest recorded the highest temperature. The sweltering heat caused wildfires and pressured power grids as people attempted to take cool air.

Also, the heat fueled a blaze burning in the Southern Oregon region, thereby threatening the homes there, leading to electricity outages.

The National Weather Service alerted the residents of excessive heat warnings in most of the Pacific Northwest regions.

It also urged the residents to take care of their elders and loved ones. Fire rescue teams reached the place of wildfires and took the utmost effort to put out the fires.
