A record 54.4 degrees were measured in Death Valley in the United States.

54.4 degrees - that was the temperature in one of the hottest places on the planet - Death Valley in the United States. The record was reported this Sunday at 15.40 local time. Such extremely high temperatures once again bring to the fore the dangers of rapid warming of the planet, scientists warn.

A thermometer in Death Valley, California, showed 54.4 degrees Celsius, the world's highest temperature in more than a century. "If confirmed, this will be the highest temperature officially recorded since July 1913," the US National Weather Service said. The temperature was reported on Sunday afternoon at 15.41 local time, near the border with Nevada. For Death Valley, the highest recorded temperature is 56.7 degrees Celsius. It was measured on July 10, 1913.

This is still the world record. Such extreme heat has once again brought to the fore the dangers of global warming. The automated surveillance system, administered by the US National Weather Service, recorded a record temperature in Death Valley in the Mojave Desert, where a handful of people could be seen on Monday. The heat wave is expected to last a whole week. July was the third hottest month in US history since official measurements were made, with three of the hottest months in July being the last five years.
