By Ninian Carter

July 12, 2021 - EUA sufre temperaturas extremadamente altas, que provocan alertas
de calor excesivo en muchas áreas el oeste de las Montañas Rocosas.

The U.S. National Weather Service continues to warn citizens west of the Rocky Mountains to brace for dangerously hot conditions, as the country endures some of the hottest temperatures ever recorded – 54.4°C registered in California's Death Valley on Friday.

In Ohio alone, at least 116 people have died from the heat, with many more Americans seeking shelter in makeshift cooling centres where air conditioning and floor mats offer people some much needed rest.

Making matters worse, wildfires, fanned by high winds, are affecting areas from the Canadian border all the way south to Mexico – disrupting power supplies needed by air conditioning systems.

June 2021 was the hottest in U.S. history, killing scores of people, knocking out power supplies and depleting vital water reservoirs.
