The hottest temperature ever recorded on earth that wasn’t due to a geothermal event or a stove top was 134.06, which was recorded in Death Valley National Park in 1913. That temperature hasn’t stopped people from moving to places like Death Valley, Libya, and Kuwait, where temperatures regularly soar above 100 degrees for most of the summer. Here are the hottest cities on earth, where you won’t want to be without a bottle of water.
1. Dallas, Texas, USA (average of 96 in July)
On June 26, 1980, a record was set in Dallas for a temperature of 113 degrees and it hit 113 again the very next day. Fortunately for Dallas residents, the city is huge and provides ample opportunities to get inside for entertainment and work.
