Death Valley hits 130 degrees, nearly breaking heat record

Death Valley is more than making its morbid name this weekend, as temperature levels in the California desert reached a near-record-breaking 130 degrees Fahrenheit (54.4 degrees Celsius), according to report

That makes it a tie for the most popular temperature level ever confirmed on Earth because the mercury struck 131 F (55 C) on July 7, 1931, in Kebili, Tunisia, The Washington Post reported. Though an even hotter temperature level of 134 F (56.7 C) was taped in Furnace Creek (then called Greenland Ranch) in Death Valley, on July 10, 1913, per Guinness World Records, some environment researchers state that reading was not confirmed, the Post stated.
