The Independent says Temperatures in Australia have soared to the same level as the hottest day ever recorded.
Onslow, a coastal town in Western Australia, reached 50.7C on Thursday, matching the previous national record set more than 60 years ago.
The Bureau of Metereology said this was also the state’s hottest temperature to date.
Other towns in the Pilbara region of Western Australia also surpassed 50C on Thursday to record some of the highest temperatures Australia has even seen, with both Mardie and Roebourne reaching 50.5C.
