Record Breaking Heat Wave Sweeps US

Ad Feedback

Some of the hottest temperatures in history are being felt across parts of the United States this week.

The highest so far was recorded in Death Valley, Calif., at 129 degrees, tying the all-time June record high for the country, according to the National Weather Service.

Yuma, Ariz., registered 118 degrees and Las Vegas came in just one degree less at 117. 

Meteorologists say the heat waves are getting longer and the danger with the extreme temperatures is that it's not cooling off at night.

More people die from heat-related issues each year than from tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, and lightning strikes combined.
