23rd July - Today's News: Mitribah, Kuwait Hits 54c (129.2f) - Highest Ever Temperature Outside of Death Valley

Subject to confirmation, two Middle East locations hit 129 degrees, hottest ever in Eastern Hemisphere, maybe the world - the official highest recorded temperature of 56.7c in Death Valley in 1913 is disputed.  In any case, these are the highest credibily recorded temperatures outside of Death valley.

And does this photo show a tornado in Edinburgh?  Well it's certainly an impressive funnel cloud, but whether it made contact with the ground to become a tornado is impossible to say
