WEATHER REPORT
US Southwest scorched by heat wave
by Staff Writers
Washington (AFP) June 29, 2013


The southwest of the United States sizzled Saturday as a heat wave baked the region amid predictions that temperatures in some areas could approach all-time record highs.

The National Weather Service warned that the scorching heat could be life-threating and that it was not expected to let up for the next several days.

It said one of the hottest areas would be Death Valley, with temperatures there expected to be near 130 degrees Fahrenheit (54 degrees Celsius) on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

"Many locations will break daily records and even approach all-time records," the National Weather Service said on its website.

Death Valley holds the world heat record -- 134 degrees Fahrenheit (57 degrees Celsius) was recorded here on July 10, 1913.

The states in the hot seat are California, Arizona and Nevada. Death Valley National Park is located partly in California and partly in Nevada.

Saturday afternoon, forecasters expected temperatures in Phoenix, Arizona, and Las Vegas, Nevada, to hit 117 degrees Fahrenheit (47 degrees Celsius). In Palm Springs, California, 119 degrees Fahrenheit (48 degrees Celsius) are possible, they said.

In Las Vegas, 30 people at an open air music festival had to be hospitalized Friday due to the heat, broadcaster NBC reported.

Heat-related deaths in Manhattan projected to rise
New York NY (SPX) May 23, 2013
Residents of Manhattan will not just sweat harder from rising temperatures in the future, says a new study; many may die. Researchers say deaths linked to warming climate may rise some 20 percent by the 2020s, and, in some worst-case scenarios, 90 percent or more by the 2080s. Higher winter temperatures may partially offset heat-related deaths by cutting cold-related mortality-but even so, ... read more
