Severe Heat Wave Causes Flight Cancelations

US Airways had to cancel 18 flights out of Phoenix on Saturday as a record heat wave hit the region.  The temperature hit a high of 48.3 C (119 F) and according to Todd Lechmacher, a US Airways spokesperson, aircraft are certified to take off in temperatures up to 47.8C (118 F).  In Death Valley, California, temperatures reached 53.3C (128 F) on Saturday and Sunday and in Las Vegas on Saturday they hit a record temperature of 47.8C (118 F).  According to the US National Weather Service, this broke the city’s previous high of 47.2C (117 F)

One of the major concerns with the heat was for visitors to the region.  Troy Stirling, a police spokesman in Lake Havasu, Arizona, which is located near the California border, said he isn’t so much concerned about the people who live there, but he is concerned about those visiting.  Charlotte Dewey, a meteorologist in Phoenix, said it is quite dangerous and they are advising people to stay indoors.
