The United States is preparing to face hot weather, with major cities including New York and Washington expecting temperatures up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit or above 38 degrees Celsius, and nearly 150 million people across the country are facing serious temperatures in a heatwave that could extend from the plains of the west Middle to the Atlantic coast.

According to Phys, the National Weather Service has issued hot weather warnings in parts of eastern Canada, and New York City has opened 500 refrigeration centers for residents to escape bad weather.

“It will be very bad on Sunday,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a warning to the city. “You have to take care of yourself, do not go out in the heat if you do not need it, these are dangerous things.”

Climate data showed June was the hottest month in the world, with a hot weather across Europe breaking national temperature records, and the EU’s Copernicus Climate Change Service found temperatures in June across the continent were 3 degrees warmer Cent of the base average between 1850 and 1900.

Temperatures rose earlier this month in Alaska in the northwestern United States, which lies along the Arctic Circle, with the city of Anchorage the largest city ever rising at 90 degrees, twice as high as the global average.

On July 10, the National Weather Service (NWS) issued a flash flood warning when a storm struck, causing the highway  heavy rain water, forcing the closure of many major roads.

Airport and train networks are also affected, due to bad weather.

Ronald Reagan Airport in the capital received about 83 millimeters of rain within an hour, the NWS said through tweets.

The local television stations transmitted in social media shows vehicles drowning on roads near landmarks such as the Washington Monument and some vehicle drivers stand on the roof of the car when water rises.
