A Warming Planet
As wildfires rage in California and Colorado, temperature records continue to crumble across the globe.
Here’s a quick look at record-breaking temperatures all over the world:
- Montreal, Canada reached its highest temperature in recorded history at 98 degrees Fahrenheit. So far 12 people have died in the heatwave
- Yerevan, the capital city of Armenia, experienced a record high of 108 degrees
- Tbilisi, Georgia topped out at 105 degrees, also a record for the city
- Eastern Oman recorded its highest low temperature in history — it never went below 109 degrees
Scientists say that 2018 could very possibly become the hottest year on record yet.
