The Death Valley in the United States has recorded hottest ever month in the world.

Through the month of July, the average temperature was 108 degrees Fahrenheit. That is 42 degrees Celsius.

The weather station has been functioning since 1961, though records for the area extend back to 1911. Of the five hottest months recorded at the site, four have occurred since 2005.

Tourists have flocked to Badwater Basin, the lowest point in North America that’s also the epicenter of the extreme heat.

“We wanted to get to the hottest spot,” Oliver Anne, a French tourist, said. “The hotter, the better.”
