World Record Back On Home Turf
On September 13, 1922 in El Azizia, Libya the temperature reached 136.4°. This has long been accepted as the hottest place in the world…until now. The World Meteorological Organization did a thorough investigation and realized the resulting measurement had been flawed. Now, the hottest place on Earth is right here in Death Valley, CA at a place called Furnace Creek where the temperature on July 10, 1913 shot up to 134 degrees.
