The highest temperature ever recorded on earth was recently seen in Death Valley National Park, California, U.S.
Reports reveal that the temperature in the region was recorded to be 130F (54.4C) and it is being verified by the US National Weather Service.
The record comes amid the heatwave in America’s west coast where temperatures are forecast to rise further this week.
The scorching conditions have led to two days blackout in California after a power plant malfunctioned on Saturday, August 15, 2020.
Sunday’s reading was recorded in Furnace Creek in Death Valley, and before this, the highest temperature reliably recorded on Earth was 129.2F (54C), also in Death Valley in 2013.
A higher reading of 134F (56.6C) a century ago, also in Death Valley, is disputed as it is believed by some modern weather experts to have been erroneous along with several other searing high temperatures recorded that summer.
