Over 70 million people are under extreme heat alerts, with cities like Phoenix and El Paso experiencing temperatures surpassing 100 degrees.
“It’s like being in the kitchen for Thanksgiving, with all the ovens and the stoves going,” said Charles Sanders, a Phoenix resident.
Although, it does not stop with hot temperatures. More weather phenomena are dangerously affecting cities in the U.S.
Catastrophic floods triggered a state of emergency in Kentucky while the state was already recovering from the EF-4 tornado in 2022.
Pennsylvania is also dealing with floods, and there are ongoing rescue efforts to find two missing children after the loss of their mother.
