State of Emergency Declared In California Due to Extreme Heat, Power System Concerns
In California's Death Valley National Park, typically one of the hottest spots in the world, a thermometer at the Furnace Creek Visitor's Center marked 130F (54C) on Thursday.
Willo Alford, who runs a general store in Death Valley Village and has lived there most of her life, told Reuters news agency: "Up to a certain temperature, it's OK, like maybe 120F (49C), but once it gets above that is when it really gets hard."
California has declared a state of emergency to address power system concerns, as parts of the US south-west reported dangerously high temperatures.
An excessive heat warning is in place for much of Arizona and California, and southern areas of Nevada and Utah.
People are being told to stay in air-conditioned areas and out of the sun.-
