The California region known as Death Valley has hit a new all-time high – in fact, it just might be the hottest temperature ever recorded on planet Earth.
On Saturday, temps at Death Valley National Park reached 135 degrees Fahrenheit, which if confirmed would be a new record.
Researchers said last month was the hottest June ever in the United States.
The temperature in Death Valley hit 130 degrees Fahrenheit over the weekend, during the hottest 24 hours ever recorded on Earth.
134 degrees — the highest maximum temperature ever recorded on Earth, and logged on July 10, 1913.https://t.co/zUUTJOkDnh
