Extreme heatwave starts hitting US

AFP, Washington

The United States is bracing for a weekend of extremely hot weather, with major cities including New York and Washington expecting temperatures close to or exceeding 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius).

Nearly 150 million people across the country are facing hazardous temperatures in a heatwave forecast to stretch from the Midwestern plains to the Atlantic coast, the National Weather Service said Friday. Heat warnings have also been issued in parts of eastern Canada. New York City has opened 500 cooling centers for residents to escape the extreme weather. "Saturday is going to be really, really bad, on through Sunday," said Mayor Bill de Blasio in a warning to the city.

"Take care of yourself, don't go out in the heat if you don't need to... This is serious, serious stuff." Climate data showed June was the hottest month on record worldwide, with a heatwave across Europe smashing national temperature records.
