Too hot to handle! Las Vegas and Phoenix are reduced to ghost towns as temperatures hit 118F and CLIMBING - grounding planes and leaving door handles so hot they BURN

The streets of Las Vegas and Phoenix have been reduced to ghost cities because the temperature has reached 118F and has climbed in a punitive heat wave that has caused planes to stop flying and door handles.
It is predicted that the temperature on the first day of summer in Phoenix will reach 120F, and the heat wave may also bring the \"fatal\" temperature to several places in Arizona, Nevada and California.
On Tuesday, with high-temperature warnings in almost all parts of California, Las Vegas is likely to reach 117F.
The National Weather Service has forecast for the past few days that Phoenix will be as high as 120F or above on Tuesday, a figure not seen in desert cities for more than 20 years.
Chris Brekenridge, a meteorologist for meteorological services, says it\'s a deadly heat no matter how you slice it.
Due to the hot weather, American Airlines canceled more than 43 flights operated by regional planes in Phoenix on Tuesday.
Officials say it will become more difficult for the plane to take off when the temperature rises.
The airline also said it would allow Phoenix Airlines passengers flying during the high temperature from Monday to Wednesday to change their flights free of charge.
S. airline spokesman Ross Feinstein said that once the temperature reached 118 degrees, its partner\'s small feeder aircraft would not be able to operate.
This maximum is set by the manufacturer Bombardier.
Large passenger planes produced by Boeing and Airbus have a high operating temperature, but during the high temperature, airlines still need to closely monitor the weight of the aircraft.
Van Stein said the airline began to limit the sales of some flights to prevent the aircraft from taking off safely in hot conditions beyond the maximum weight.
In hot weather, airlines can use other strategies to limit weight, such as not fully refuel and then stop refuel.
Phoenix and Las Vegas are used to 110-
But temperatures above 115 are rare.
Phoenix reached 118 degrees on Monday, setting a record for last year.
The last time the city reached 120 was in 1995.
On 1990, a notorious heat wave reached 120 degrees for several consecutive days, including a record of 122 degrees.

Kevin Foster warns people to be extra careful with concrete, car interiors and playground equipment, especially for young children with sensitive skin.
Foster warned that sidewalks and concrete could be dangerous for pets.
Extreme heat also spreads in California as the Central Valley is baked at unusually harsh temperatures.
On Sunday, reading, a Northern California city, set a record of 110 degrees in June 18, 19 degrees higher than normal temperatures.
The weather forecast predicts Death Valley could reach 124 degrees on Tuesday.
Nevada officials warn tourists that Las Vegas Avenue is usually hotter than the rest of the city.
Meteorological Service meteorologist Ashley Allen says tall, enclosed buildings and long periods of concrete in the area have caused rapid warming and slow cooling in the area.
It is difficult to accurately predict how hot the street will be, she said, because the weather service there does not have an official reading, however, although the city\'s airport expects the temperature to reach 115 to 120 degrees on Monday, but the temperature is likely to reach 114 degrees.
Officials say high temperatures are a serious public health hazard in places like Phoenix and Las Vegas.

The number of deaths in 2016 was the highest in more than a decade.
The Arizona health service says nearly 2,000 people enter the emergency room in Arizona each year because of the heat.

Kurt Dixon, an emergency room doctor at Banner Health in Phoenix, said people have a range of hot diseases during the summer, including fatigue, heatstroke and severe sun burns. Dr.
Moneesh Bhow, medical director, emergency department, medical center, Banner University, said that when the temperature reaches more than 110 degrees, the internal cooling mechanism of the body is ineffective.
One way the body cools is by radiating heat through the skin into the air, but the system reverses when the external temperature rises to 110 or more.
When this happens, Bhow says, we have to rely on our second mechanism, which is sweating.
Sweat will make your skin feel cool and some heat will be removed when it evaporates.
He noted that keeping moisture is essential for sweating and keeping it cool.
In addition to the heat wave sweeping the southwest of the country, Gulf coastal countries are preparing for their strong weather system.
