[Global Times reporter Zhen Xiang] according to the US cable day report, an automatic observation station of the U.S. Meteorological Administration in death valley, California, at 3:41 p.m. local time, measured the local ground temperature of 54.4 degrees Celsius, the highest surface temperature recorded in the world for more than a century. The world’s highest surface temperature, previously certified by the World Meteorological Organization, was also measured at the same location in death valley, California, on July 10, 1913, when the surface temperature was as high as 56.6 degrees Celsius. Interestingly, the local surface temperature of 58 ℃ was measured in Libya in September 1922 and 55 ℃ in Tunisia in July 1931. However, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) investigation later found that the high temperature records of 58 ℃ in Libya and 55 ℃ in Tunisia were not accurate. < / P > < p > temperature records usually take a little time to verify.
